Aerial Act Creation

Hudson Valley Circus Arts
Event organized by Hudson Valley Circus Arts

Get Directions



Find your unique style and voice in the air! This workshop offers tools for building story and character in your aerial act. We will use different games & exercises to help you get beyond the cookie-cutter, generic aerial movement patterns that tend to develop when we mostly practice aerial in class. The aim of this workshop is to prepare you so that when you choreograph, rehearse and perform, you can stay safe in the air and be uniquely expressive at the same time!

Teacher: Nicki Miller

First, I am an aerial theatre artist. With the storytelling tools of theatre and the poetry of circus arts, my unique professional experience in both theatre and circus has given me an effective vocabulary for creating, performing and collaborating on meaningful performance work across genres. Second, and as important as the art, is my work as a movement educator for those interested in safely and boldly embodying and expressing themselves physically. I have a degree in theatre from Syracuse University, various fitness/movement training credentials (NASM CPT, Fit For Birth, FRCms), and over a decade of experience creating, performing and teaching in throughout North America. I am the co-founder and director of Only Child Aerial Theatre, creator of ASYLUM.

Prerequisite: come with a potiential sequence that you’re comfortable with. This doesn’t need to be your final choreography.

Pricing: $50 for just this workshop or $45 when combined with Intro to Rope
