Aerials. Frankie Manning’s eyes would light up when he talked about the air steps that he invented. It’s a wonderful part of swing dancing and this is your time to fly. Give it a go.
It is for absolute new aerialists and assumes no knowledge. The day will focus on 3 or 4 of the easiest pops/jumps/flips/dips in our repertoire. We will also work on dancing into the aerials and how to spot them safely. It will be a great day and the perfect place to start flying!!
The workshop will be anchored by Claire and Marcello, two energetic aerialists!
Over the day you will do the following:
Learn 3 or 4 aerials with different levels of complexity.
Dance in and out of the aerials in a fun jam session type environment.
Learn to spot each other safely for best results.
