What type of training is included in a retreat?
Retreats focus on aerial technique, performance and act creation on the single point dance trapeze which is applicable to any equipment. You are more than welcome to bring your own apparatus should you wish to create a specific piece. We also have aerial silks available at the studio. Our guest teachers also offer private lessons on a variety of apparatuses including aerial silks, static circus trapeze, rope, and aerial hoop or lyra.
How is this different from a strictly technical workshop? Aside from adding to your technical repertory we really give you guidance and insight into your performance presence and tools to become a more riveting and memorable performer.
Where do I stay when I attend a retreat?
This house has a screened-in porch, 57 ft. long, looking out over the marshes and a tidal creek with a view of Sapelo Island in the distance. Adjacent to the porch is a 16X18 ft. deck. Sit in our Hot Springs hot tub at night on that deck under a canopy of brilliant stars, undiminished by civilization’s lights. There are five sets of french doors that open onto the porch on the southeast side. Open the front door and the french doors, and a gentle breeze blows through the whole house. Yet the whole house is quite private. Our house is adjacent, but away from your viewscape. No other neighbors are visible.
