Class: “Foundations of physical contact through the lense of acrobatics”

After a decade of performing acrobatics around the world Jake Silvestro will be delivering two workshops aimed at introducing the fundamental elements of contract, weight bearing and ensemble movement. Focusing on movement efficiency and taking weight, this workshop invites participants into the first steps of physical connection that are involved in contract improv and group acrobatics. This workshop is open to all levels and will begin by demonstrating the strength we can find when working as a group. By sharing weight and trusting others through physical contact dancers can find new and exciting ways of engaging with others.
