Fri. 8/6. Noon – 1:30 PM MDT

It’s not the same to create aerial dance in front of an audience, rather than in front of a camera. We will explore the sensitive eye of the camera and find new perspectives to tell our story, movement or choreography through the lens of the camera.
For this workshop you need to prepare previously a sequence of movement that you want to work on. Also try to find a space that inspires you. Ages 12+.
