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

SATURDAY, October 5
6:30pm-8:00pm: “3 Minutes in a Footlock”

We’ll use only one footlock for a full choreographed sequence to demonstrate just how much you can get out of one wrap. Appropriate for all levels, be prepared to learn choreography and explore musicality.

Prerequisites: Open to all levels!

SUNDAY, October 6
9:00am-10:30am: Drops
Kylie will teach her favorite drop sequence, using her cardinal rule for sequencing–NO UNWRAPPING. Not for the faint of heart! We’ll be going hands-free, falling in all directions, and building the sequence from the inside out.
Prerequisites: Ability to climb to top of silks multiple times, clean invert from a climb, and willingness to work on drops. Open to Level 3 students.
10:45am-12:15pm: Belay Theory
Rather than an encyclopedic overview of belay wrap entries, we’ll dive deep into how a belay works, with an exploration of popular (and some unusual) belay entries to illustrate the theory. Aerialists will be encouraged to think conceptually and move away from “trick collecting,” emphasizing understanding the mechanics of these interesting wraps. Students will be able to apply this knowledge to every belay wrap they’ve ever learned (and any new innovations that might pop up on instagram in the future!)

Prerequisites: Open to all levels. Ability to think and take instruction mid-air and/or upside down.

About Kylie:
Kylie is an artist, aerial instructor, and dancer based in Los Angeles. With a lifetime of training in classical ballet and contemporary dance, Kylie brings the ease of movement and beautiful lines of ballet to her aerial dancing. Kylie has been training in aerial arts for seven years, was the first student certified through the Aerial Physique teacher training course in Los Angeles, and currently serves as an instructor and the curriculum director for Wildman Athletica. After earning her Master’s Degree in fine art in 2017 (and presenting her thesis on aerial improvisation) Kylie deepened her focus on wrap theory, choreography, and sequencing. In her coaching, Kylie aims to impart upon her students a deep understanding of the skills she teaches, rather than step-by-step instructions that are shallowly memorized.

Cancellation Policy: For workshops, cancellations must be made at least 48 hours in advance of the workshop to be eligible for a full refund. Cancellations made less than 48 hours in advance will only be refunded under special circumstances.
