"Together at these workshops we will explore a few of the fundamentals that define, gain and improve some of the tools that a circus artist needs today. We will get an introduction to the discipline of aerial straps. We will work on having a solid base in floor acrobatics, that you will be able to modify with your own style. Explore and define your sense of the stage and the perception of the other artists that fill that stage but some group improvisation exercises. And also give you some feedback from the reality of a freelancer circus artist to prepare you as much as possible for the reality of the working industry."
