Fabric Foundations: Making Noise workshop no1
Time & Location
About the Event
Off The Wall is hosting it's first MAKING NOISE workshop, and warmly invite you to come along.
Each workshop will have a different focus from our weird and wonderful workshop bag.
WORKSHOP 1: FABRIC FOUNDATIONS
This 3 hour workshop will start with a class that leads you through a unique flowing series of strengthening and conditioning exercises for your whole body that will help activate and condition your muscles and body ready for playing on the aerial sling.
The second part of the workshop will focus on the techniques behind working with the aerial sling - the functional foundations that set you up with the knowedge to eventually play and explore more.
Expect to work, and most definitely play hard!
WHAT IS AERIAL SLING?
Aerial Slings are exactly that – large slings of silk hanging from the ceiling that allow you to move into a diverse range of figures and shapes. What we love in particular about the Aerial Slings is its ability to enhance fluid and dance-like movements as you execute your moves in a sequence - something which sets it apart from the similar Aerial Silks apparatus. Also known as hammock or swings, it is a great introduction to Aerial Fitness, providing excellent support whilst you concentrate on getting your arms and legs in the right place! For seasoned practitioners, the mastery lies in keeping a constant flow through transitions, especially whilst spinning, which could prove to be an extremely rewarding outcome.

Each person will be given their own aerial sling for the whole workshop and no equipment will be shared.
Limited places of 7 available on a first come-first served basis.
9:30 - 12:30
