Vertical Core & Balance


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.
An hour focus on activating and bringing awareness to the core abdominal and hollow body used in aerial. By drilling the core with proprioceptive and kinesthetic awareness we prevent injury, expand our ability to balance and hold poses. Pushing our flexibility while building and maintaining strength. This class will help prep for inversions, holding shapes, and spiraling open flexibility. We’ll use fun floor balances, (handstands, headstands, back arches) poses, and shape making, to build habits of always moving from the vertical core. Come drill hard, and play hard.
