This series is for the student who has learned multiple lyra moves and skills, but isn’t certain how to sequence those skills together with grace and confidence. Students will learn several sequences and receive feedback on technique and transition. Feedback will be personalized with the goal of enhancing the student’s natural strengths and improving overall movement. Students should bring a recording device (phone or ipad) and a notebook and pen for note-taking; this will increase the knowledge students gain from this series. This class is for students with previous lyra experience; if you are not sure if you are ready for this class, please speak with Heather.
Heather Booth first learned the art of trapeze and aerial dance in 1997 in New Orleans, and she’s had a hard time walking on the ground ever since! Heather owns Miraas Aerial, a Denver-based aerial studio, where she spent four years as Creative Director and Lead Instructor, teaching aerial silk/fabric, static trapeze, lyra, and aerial yoga to adults and children. In addition to teaching aerial in the studio, Heather has spent years traveling and teaching culture and human rights as a university professor. An advocate of ‘social circus’, Heather has worked as an aerial trainer in Israel, Palestine, and Thailand, teaching trust and peace through circus skills. Heather’s aerial trainers have included: Julio Batista de Souza of Cirque du Soleil’s “Ka”, Alexandra Walker of the Slavic Sisters; Carrie Heller of the Circus Arts Institute; Shayna Swanson of Aloft, Lisa Natoli of Lisa’s Bright Ideas, and Josh McGirk of Aeriality, where she received Aerial Yoga teacher training.
