Aerial Workshops

Aerial Puzzles

This is a fun workshop for Intermediate to Advanced level students that will challenge skill base, prompt thoughtful transitions, and invite a deeper understanding to the Aerial apparatus.  I primarily teach this workshop to Fabric and Rope students.

Aerial Sequencing

This workshop focuses on smart transitions and sequencing that maximizes time, effort, and individual strengths.  It is perfect for students ready to create an act for the first time, working on a new act, or building strength, stamina, and creativity to be ready for an act in the future!  I teach this workshop to students working on Aerial Silks, Straps, Rope, and Hoop.

The Aerial Games

This is a great presentation for students who are advancing in their practice.  It gives challenges, brain teasers, and invitations to perform and work together as a team.  I usually present this workshop/Game night for Silks and Rope students.

Strap Dance

A fun workshop for students working on Aerial Straps, it invites students to use the straps in unexpected ways, focusing on leverage, body position, and beauty.  It is great for students with a minimum of 6 weeks of work on Aerial Straps.

Performing Aerial Art

This is a great workshop to help your students step into more performance based work.  It is ideal for students with an act or who are comfortable with several sequences and ready to focus on character development, quality of performance, and story telling!  I can be taught to students on any apparatus.

Other workshops

I have other workshops available and can customize based on your school's needs.  Some examples include "Bring on Belay", "Lyra Sequencing,"  and "Characters in the Air,"  and "Ambiance Performance."   I can also teach Intro courses, Improv based work, and more.  I can help your school or studio begin an Aerial program with a curriculum that works and is focused on the areas that you want to focus on.  Please contact me and we can find the best fit for your students and your space!  (205)907-2942  or Leishmk@yahoo.com

Theatre and Dance Workshops

AcroDance

My Acrodance workshop is lots of fun and accessible to all types of students all ages.  Whether you currently have an Acro program at your studio or not, you should consider this for your students.  In today's Dance world, dancers need acrobatic skills to make them stand out.  This workshop/intensive builds strength, stamina, acrobatic technique and invites students to utilize their strengths to create unique and interesting movement.  We also use partner and group work to build strength and create unique pictures!

Improvisational Movement

This workshop/intensive invites students to use improvisational movement as expression of energy, communication, and emotion.  It teaches students to invite spatial awareness, listening skills, and group connection into the improvisation classroom.  

Theatrical Performance

This workshop/intensive is fantastic for dance students who need to bring an element of Performance into their movement.  It uses concepts of emotion in movement, communication, story telling, and character development to draw students out of their insecurities and find a playful way to Perform!

Contemporary , Jazz, and Hip Hop

These are more tradition workshops/intensives with warm - up, across the floor, and fun combos for your students to enjoy!  al

Musical Theatre

This workshop /intensive chooses a historical Musical Theatre choreographer and teaches the students about the choreographer and uses the choreographer's style to create a piece that students can perform if there is enough time or simply enjoy playful working on during the workshop that day.

Other

There are other workshops,intensives, and Camps that I can offer your students.  Some examples are "Dance for Circus Artists," "Circus Arts for Dancers," "Acro Partner Dance," as well as choreography for your school's recital, theatrical show, or student showcase.  Contact me and we can customize your workshop, intensive, or camp based on your school's needs.  (205)907-2942  or Leishmk@yahoo.com
