We will explore key elements of music, how to listen and feel for rhythm, melody, dynamics and voice. Students will have ample opportunity to experience aerial movement to a variety of musical styles and will be able to provide and receive feedback on how their own natural movement style meets the music. This workshop is appropriate for aerialists who can safely string together 3+ skills in the air. This workshop can incorporate multiple apparatuses.
