This series is recommended for those who have either taken the first performance series or those with previous lyra experience. This series will focus on learning intermediate lyra skills, honing the technique of basics skills, refining transitions, and building strength. There will be a performance at the end of the 10 week series. Classes are highly structured.
Each week will introduce a new skill and a short series of movements with careful consideration of how to flow from one move to the next. The class is limited to 12 students and the class will use 6 lyras which will allow students to maximize their time on equipment. Each class will include a warm up, instruction and practice of moves and technique, sequence work, strength building exercises and stretching/cool down.
