We’ll begin each day with a short warm up that leads us smoothly into our first harness exploration.
In our 1st vertical dance session we’ll begin checking in on correct use of the equipment before shifting the focus to understanding where your body is in space, offering useful tips and guidance on how to effectively ground yourself on the wall to free up your dance.
In the 2nd of our morning sessions we’ll look at developing your creative imagination on the wall. Offering up simple tasks to explore in solos and in pairs and give you some tools for your creative kit bag.
The afternoon session will see us working in solos, pairs and groups, this class forms an introduction to the characteristics of working on single and counterbalance lines, in different configurations and spatial relationships and using guided improvisations to explore each new territory.
Please wear multiple snug layers around your hips and waist for your comfort. Long sleeved shirts are also handy for some moves and you may also want to bring slim soled plimsolls or pumps for working on the wall – Feiyues are ideal!
If you have a climbing harness you prefer and any kit (gri-gris, rigs, karabiners etc.), please bring them with you.
