Aerial Level 2: Silks, Committed Series with Megan Rhoden
May 24, 2016 @ 7:15 pm - 8:15 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:15 pm on Tuesday, repeating until July 12, 2016
Tryouts: May 17th, Drop-in $21. Mandatory for those who have NOT taken a series with Megan in the past. Optional for students who have already participated in one of Megan’s series.
This drop-in class will allow you to get familiar with a few basic moves that will be required for the series. This will also allow the teacher to assess your skill level and make sure you are ready and capable to perform to a skill level appropriate for the Level 2 Dance Silks.
No drop-ins after May 17th.
Can’t get enough of aerial silks? For semi-beginners looking to improve new skills and learn more moves or for the more experienced aerialist looking to refine and perfect your repertoire – this is the series for you! Come join us for a 8-week series of aerial dance. Students will build upper-body and core strength, increase range of motion and flexibility, and get in tune with their creative side. The classes will focus on climbs, inverts, foot locks and descents on the fabric. Other skills may be taught as students make progress. This series will focus on making aerial fabrics safe and accessible to everyone in an encouraging and fun environment. You will also be preparing for a performance for Saturday Evening July 16th? Sunday, afternoon, July 17th?
Prerequisite: Instructor approval. Must have completed six Aerial Level I classes and/or be able to execute the Aerial Level 1 class skills. Must be comfortable with climbing, foot locks and supporting your own body weight. Foot locks can be done from the ground, but we will practice working them from the air.
$160 for 8 week series. Free to Aerial Golden Circle Members who commit to attending the full series.
Megan Rhoden has been spinning in the silks since March 2013 and hasn’t made her way down yet. She even continued her practice in Singapore during her semester abroad in school! She began dancing lyra and trapeze shortly afterwards and loves it just as much! Aerial is the perfect balance and outlet to her awesome, yet hectic architecture career.
Megan trained under Ukoyia Mastin from NECCA (New England Center for the Circus Arts) and mentored Heather Booth, original owner of Miraas Aerial studio in Boulder and lead aerial dance teacher at Still & Moving Center. Megan is a naturally gifted teacher. As an aerial teacher and practitioner, Megan is excited by the challenging journey that she plans to continue for the rest of her life. Megan loves with her students the fun, happiness and peace of aerial in a safe, positive and encouraging environment!
