Some information about the workshop I will instruct:


Saturday 01.06.2019, 16:00-19:00

Lasnamäe Kergejõustikuhall

Punane 45, 13619 Tallinn, Estonia

This workshop will focus on three fundamental elements of aerial hoop choreography: 1) smooth and creative transitions; 2) conveying meaning through movement; and 3) musicality. Students will learn and practice a sequence on hoop, with each practice round focusing on one of of the discussed elements. Lastly, students will learn to perform the sequence to music, using the music to articulate their moves. Musicality will be a principle focus of this workshop. Eliana is a musician as well as a performing aerialist, and she has an innate awareness of how to use music to define movement.

If there is time at the end of the workshop, we will discuss and practice ambient performance on hoop (performing to music without any pre-set choreography). Eliana will supply a wide selection of music, but if you have a specific piece of music that you would like to use for ambient performance, please bring it on your phone or mp3 player.

*Please note: This workshop is not for absolute beginners. At least a few months of experience on aerial hoop is strongly encouraged.

I hope to see some of you there!
