Spring into Aerial at Joe’s – Registration Open!

Spring Session – Registration Open!

Spring 2017 Classes

WE NOW OFFER ONLINE REGISTRATION! Register online for private lessons and group classes at upspringstudio.com/classes. Please be sure to read our important information for students prior to signing up.

Aerial Foundations – Sundays 2-3pm

This class, for students of all levels, covers fundamental aerial skills on a variety of apparatus. Instructors will work with students to break down basic aerial skills into critical components with the goal of improving technique. Topics may include climbing fabric, improving flexibility, perfecting trapeze mounts, training for inversions, and many other important skills.

Aerial Yoga – Mondays 12-1pm through May 22nd

This gentle class will help students build strength and flexibility. This class is for students of any age and ability and will be taught on low-hanging aerial hammocks. No prior experience is necessary. (Note: This class will be on hiatus June through August but will return in September 2017. Students are invited to try one of our other classes during the break!)

Aerial Dance – Wednesdays 8:30-9:30pm – starts March 8th

In this class, students will learn a short, simple sequence on dance trapeze and/or aerial hammock. Students explore tools for expanding and deepening the sequence, then use those tools to modify their sequence and create original aerial work. This class is for all levels, and no prior aerial dance experience is necessary. Students continuing from a prior session of Aerial Dance will have the option to continue their previous work or start something new. (Please note that this class focuses on creative expression and is taught on low-to-the-ground apparatus. Those who are interested in learning more intense or advanced aerial technique should also register for Aerial Fundamentals or private lessons.) 

Dance Trapeze Mini-Session – Sundays 2-3pm – dates TBD

In this 3-week mini session, students will learn dance trapeze conditioning techniques and new tricks and transitions. This mini-session is open to all but is best for students who have taken at least one aerial class. Intermediate trapeze students looking to strengthen and expand dance trapeze skills are also encouraged to sign up. Students will walk away from this mini-session with a dance trapeze sequence. This mini-session is offered as part of Aerial Foundations, so students who are already taking that class need not sign up separately. We anticipate offering the next mini-session in late April/early May. Stay tuned for dates!

Private Lessons – Sundays 12-2pm, Mondays 11am-12pm

Private lessons are offered in one-hour blocks on Sundays and Mondays. Apparatus includes fabrics, trapeze, aerial hammock, and lyra. Private lessons can also be arranged for groups of 3-6 students. Beginners welcome. Email upspringstudio@gmail.com to inquire about availability.

Fabric Workshops with Kate Winston

Join us in March and April for the next two installments of Kate Winston’s fabulous fabrics workshops! Kate’s workshops are valuable because she explores individual topics in depth to allow for greater understanding of variations and progressions. These workshops are for students who are comfortable climbing fabric and remaining in the air for a few minutes at a time. The March installment will focus on progressions to inversions. The topic for the April workshop is TBD. Click here to register. 

Poi Workshops with Charlotte Byram

Love the circus but prefer to keep your feet the ground? Try our upcoming poiworkshop with poi master Charlotte Byram. This workshop will begin by giving you a solid grounding in the world of poi, introducing students to skills such as momentum manipulation and not hitting oneself in the face. Additional tricks may include “weaving,” the “butterfly,” and the “corkscrew,” among others. Lessons are open to any adult with any level of physicality. All you need is a willingness to have fun! March 12th and 19th. Click here to register.
