Aerial Intensives Masterclasses

Nov 3, 2023 @ 10:30 am - Nov 4, 2023 @ 2:30 pm

Irish Aerial Dance Festival Masterclasses | National Circus Festival of Ireland

Aerial Intensives Masterclasses

Fidget Feet and the Irish Aerial Dance Festival are excited to partner again with the National Circus Festival of Ireland to bring you a series of aerial dance masterclasses in 2023! These classes are aimed at more advanced aerialists, and will require submitting a video to prove you are the correct level to participate. Fidget Feet has been bringing aerial classes to the NCFI for years, and those regular classes will continue. These new masterclasses are to begin raising the level of aerial available, and bring a little taste of IADF to the Winter months!

Judenald Marcus Penders on Creativity

Jude will be running a creativity workshop, description pending.

Jenny Tufts on Aerial Hoop

90 minutes of brain-teasing slithery sequencing, best suited to students who have a strong current aerial hoop practice and are comfortable working with fast spin. Clothes which cover your legs, midriff, and elbows are advised for comfort.

Sean McIlraith on Rope

Rolls & S-Wraps
This 1.5 hour workshop is aimed towards intermediate/advanced rope & silks students. This workshop will be on rope, but is all transferable to fabric. Beginning with specific conditioning and drills to find each individuals balance points, engagement of right muscle groups and small amounts of theory, the workshop builds foundations for participants to take the content and build and develop it in their own time after the workshop.

S-Wraps: Working through ‘correct’ positioning, different entries, different ways of descending and exploring the movement as a gyroscopic concept instead of in a single plain this aims to open the students’ creativity to explore how they can move through this versatile wrap.

Rolls: Primarily focusing on roll-up technique, this section will be more focused on drills and all the different ways you can roll up a rope. Working on dynamic entires, static entries and roll-downs as a tool to grasp roll ups.

• S-wrap/helicopter wrap & descent (does not have to be clean)
• C-shaping experience on the floor or in loop of hammock/fabric

These classes are included in your festival pass but require booking.
