SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 1
Dance Hammock
Obscureography for Fabric
All Roads Lead to Belayville & Other Interesting Knots

To receive the multiple workshop discount, please purchase either the 2 Workshop Pass or the 3 Workshop Pass before signing up!

10:30am-12:00pm: Dance Hammock
Hammock has been a long time favorite of mine because I feel like I can simply DANCE! Without the entanglement of a fabric tail or the defined edge of a steel bar my body feels as though it can move as freely as if there were nothing there at all!

In this workshop we will explore specific skills, pathways and transitions that I think are particularly dance like in nature. We will also examine the space between the fabric loop and floor, how these two can meet and interconnect to create spins, circles, transitions, mounts and supported floor choreography to enhance your hammock vocabulary or create an entirely new performative experience. No background in dance or hammock is required.

Prerequisites: Open/all levels, but some aerial experience is recommended


4:30pm-6:00pm: Obscureography for Fabric
Learn more than just skills. This workshop will expose you to my personal perspective on creating a dance like effect in the air via intentional structure and a careful skill curation that lends itself to various successful movement qualities. We will explore fresh ideas in ascension, shape making and dynamics.

Prerequisites: Level 2 and above, able to be in the air for up to 2 minutes, ability to invert in the air is strongly encouraged.


6:15pm-7:45pm: All Roads Lead to Belayville & Other Interesting Knots
I’ve known what a belay was for a long time. And it never really interested me until I started using it in non traditional ways by delving into a deeper understanding of both the simplicity and the potential complexity of the structure.

Students will leave with a greater understanding of tying, managing and manipulating knots using the whole body through a progression of drills, examples of construction methods and a brief exploration of a variety of applications.

Prerequisites: Ability to invert in the air and be in the air for up to 2 minutes in a supported position. Some introduction to belay is helpful but not required.

TUESDAY, August 13, 7:30pm-9:30pm: Spin Up a Storm (Beg/Int)
Students will progress through the building blocks of spinning: flares, transitions in and out of positions like straddle, nutcracker, and meathook. Students will leave the workshop with the progressions they’ll need to gain the skills of flaring to any position during a 1-arm spin that they can hold safely as well as ways to work on fast spins.

In collaboration with Jennifer Freeman, DPT (practicing and research faculty at Mercer University in Atlanta) and Angie Prescott (ACRO PT, DPT, CSCS) this workshop focuses on safe progressions to go from the ground to air, with a movement screen, investigation into good body mechanics as well as different functional training tools, exercises and techniques to get your butt over your head. This clinic will include both teaching cues and training tools beneficial for anyone from a beginner wishing to deepen their understanding to coaches interested in learning how to recognize when a student is displaying signs of potential movement dysfunction and advanced students hoping to achieve a badass 1-arm inversion.

Prerequisites: Anyone is welcome as it is primarily a theory-based workshop (and anyone can watch and learn and will walk away with plenty of tools to improve their inversions no matter what level they’re at).


THURSDAY, August 15, 7:30pm-9:30pm: Aerial Doubles– Spinning, Counter-Levers, and More!
Build a varied duo vocabulary with static basing (cross-back straddle), duo spinning, counter levers, and more! Students will work with partners to develop accessible vocabulary on straps and fabric to based on individual strengths.

Aerial Dance Choreography with Meredith

SATURDAY, July 13, 6:30pm-8:00pm: Aerial Dance Choreography
Starting with a dance inspired warm up, we transition into a choreographed combination from the floor into the air. Combining yoga, dance, aerial silks and music, we will open our bodies and minds to new possibilities of flight and self-expression. This high energy combo is choreographed to “Fitness” by Lizzo!!!

She performed in the New Moves Dance Showcase only 3 months after dislocating her knee cap. After her injury, which took place at a hip-hop audition, she discovered the profound healing of yoga. She has since incorporated her practice into her performances and dance classes.

After moving to Lake Tahoe, CA in 2013, she received her 200-hour yoga certification in Bhakti Vinyasa Flow and began training in aerial silks and aerial hoop. In 2017 she became a Certified Personal Trainer and in 2018 she received her certification in aerial yoga. She teaches aerial silks and aerial yoga to children and adults, creates custom exercise plans through personal training, and has created a yoga-dance class called Dance Yogi Dance. Through Dance Yogi Dance, she blends her love of yoga and hip hop and coordinates flash mobs with her students.

Meredith has performed at the The World Concert at Sand Harbor, Guitarfish Music Festival, Made in Tahoe at Squaw Valley, Summit LA and more, along with collaborations with local bands including Sneaky Creatures and Metal Echo.
