– 6pm: Flashy Dance Trapeze Skills
Trapeze Level 3+ | Intermediate-Advanced | 90 Minutes
We’ve all seen it: that routine that looks so show-stopping but seems so simple we can’t help but think, “I can do that!” And you can.
In this workshop we will learn how to add some flash without breaking the bank. Not every jaw dropping skill has to be terrifying, impossibly painful or require some super human strength. We will explore some really accessible skills that will add some extra sparkle to your routine.
* Thursday, November 21st
– 6:15pm: Fabric Witchcraft
Silks Level 3+ | Intermediate-Advanced | 90 Minutes
The allure of fabric is truly multi dimensional. Its beautiful, tactile and confusing. It can seemingly defy physics. Wraps, shelves and connections can appear and disappear in an instant. Complex but stable architectures are constructed out of nothing.
In this workshop we will explore some really fun examples of knots, hitches, releases, wraps and fabric theories that simply DO NOT SEEM POSSIBLE or are totally surprising to even an educated eye.
– 8pm: Dynamic Sling
Go big or go home! 😉 All the big moves, drops and totally wild transitions you can handle all on one place!
We will begin this workshop with a skills progression of dynamic movements, beats, flairs and catch locks. Students can expect to work on: beats, flairs, dynamic pathways, simple drops, hands free dives, direction changing drops, fancy transitions, rolls and releases.
* Friday, November 22nd
– 5pm: Dance Hammock
Open/all levels, some aerial experience is required | 90 Minutes
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.
– 6:45pm: Curtain Climbing: Open Fabric
Silks Level 3+ | Intermediate-Advanced. Pre-reqs: Ability to invert in the air and be in the air for up to 2 minutes in a supported position. | 90 Minutes
One of the most distinct attributes of fabric choreography is the ability to open it up and explore! In this workshop we will explore a variety of open fabric maneuvers, shapes and ideas to accentuate your existing skillset and choreographies.

At a young age, Brittany enjoyed competing on a national award winning rowing team, coaching swim team for her local community center and assisting with as many outdoor team building adventure activities as possible (such as climbing/mountaineering, rappelling, kayaking, etc.). Her love of movement and passion for using adventure to help others realize their full potential began early on.
After her first touch of the fabric, she was hooked! She began taking classes, training and teaching all across the world! She believes that everyone has a gift to share, and enjoys sharing her love of the fabric with all who are willing to explore. Combining her knowledge of the body as a full time Licensed Massage Therapist with her passion for aerials has enabled her to help others realize their strengths, both inside and out.
Brittany performs on sling, silks, lollipop, lyra and chains. Her main apparatus and true love being the aerial sling/hammock.
Brittany has completed aerial teacher training with NECCA, as well as rigging and rope course certification trainings with both Outward Bound and Delbert Hall.
