Alex Allan and Juan-Luis Gonzales workshops, December 7th, 8th & 9th — only at Circus Warehouse!

ROPE: Dynamic Flow with Alex Allan Dec 7th, 8th and 9th, at 5pm – 7pm

(For single class drop in, $75. sign up online. All payment must be in advance. To take all 3 Rope classes of the workshop at a discount, $210, email michelle@circuswarehouse.com and she’ll set it up for you. Additional discounts available for taking all 6 classes with Alex Allan and Juan-Luis Gonzales!)

Level: Intermediate/Advanced – Participants should feel confident with a range of beats and dynamic-based movement and be able to perform multiple, clean straight-arm inversions in the air and straight-armed hip keys.

This series has been designed to give participants a new perspective on the creation of contemporary rope work. Students will not only learn a new vocabulary of momentum-based skills but they will learn them as a part of larger phrases of choreography. Skills will be explored as transitions and technique will be focused on to create a quality of movement that is fluid, seamless and powerful. We will also explore C-shaping pathways a means moving efficiently up and down the rope in rotational movements.

Students will also explore different ways of transitioning from the floor to the rope to give inspiration for creating work that is not restricted to the air but that moves organically between floor and air.

Maximum students : 12

STRAPS with Juan-Luis Gonzales, Dec 7th, 8th and 9th, 3pm – 5pm

(For single class drop in, $75, sign up online. All payment must be in advance. To take all 3 Straps classes of the workshop at a discount, $210, email michelle@circuswarehouse.com and she’ll set it up for you. Additional discounts available for taking all 6 classes with Alex Allan and Juan-Luis Gonzales!)

Level: All Levels – Participants should feel confident in performing multiple straight-arm inversions.

This workshop welcomes all participants, although some aerial experience is recommended. Class will begin with some conditioning as well as basic, functional exercises and technique corrections. Those newer to the apparatus will be given conditioning drills and safe progressions while intermediate and advanced students will work on exercises and skills customized to their level and strengths to continue developing and broadening their straps vocabulary.

Questions and discussion is encouraged and everyone should be free to ask for help at any time. Straps can demand a lot of energy and strength but we will focus on technique and efficient pathways in order to minimize effort and maximize easy and fluidity. No matter what level you’re at everyone will be challenged while having fun!

Maximum students : 12.
