Cirque Aerial Sling (hammock)


This class is taught by:

Contessa Hinderliter

An international cirque artist, Contessa, has been performing and sharing the art of aerial silks since 2009. With a degree in Theatre Arts, she has gone on to perform with worldwide circus acts, as well as touring musicians. Creating ensemble stage acts as well as choreo and aerial acts, she will be staging her first full length show, "WHITEOUT", this fall in Los Angeles.
Her passion as a theatrical artist has always been planted deep in movement and dance as well as a taste for pushing boundaries.
Interested in combining art forms that continue to create new stories, aerial silks are a freeing, flexible way to utilize the body through space.
To lead others in discovering new perspectives through technique and grace, Contessa teaches classes that train and prepare students for performance.
To discover all the possibilities of human movement with feet no longer planted on the ground.

This class teaches the art of aerial dance. We build the necessary skill set so that we can freely and sportively move the body. Learning to meld the body movements with the fluidity of the hammock you will learn from the traditional cirque style and we will utilize our skills into choreography and learning the art of flow. We build strength, stamina, as well as learn the knots, holds and grips so that the body can learn grace and long lines. Some prior experience is helpful but all levels are welcome.
