Jenn Bruyer is coming to the Madison Circus Space!
Jenn will be offering the following workshops and will also be available for private lessons.
CREATING CONTINUOUS MOVEMENT (FABRIC and/or ROPE)
Level: Intermediate or Int + on fabric and/or rope
This workshop will explore a selection of the fundamental pieces and parts of ascending, descending and rotational movement. Students will then learn a specifically designed sequence that emphasizes structure, progression and the methodology to combine it all to tell a mesmerizing story.
Students can expect to learn new skills and methods that translate and interconnect in many meaningful ways. Together we will twist, spiral, invert, roll, wrap and construct our way up, down and through the vertical canvas.
Level: Intermediate or Int + on fabric
The allure of fabric is truly multi dimensional. Its beautiful, tactile and confusing. It can seemingly defy physics. Wraps, shelves and connections can appear and disappear in an instant. Complex but stable architectures are constructed out of nothing.
In this workshop we will explore some really fun examples of knots, hitches, releases, wraps and fabric theories that simply DO NOT SEEM POSSIBLE or are totally surprising to even an educated eye.
S-LOCK EXPLORATION (FABRIC and/or ROPE)
Level: Intermediate/Advanced – Participants must be comfortable with the hip key and s-lock wraps.
S-lock is a fundamental wrap for vertical apparatus. When watching an aerial performance we immediately recognize when someone is getting into this wrap and can often readily predict what they’re going to do out of it.
Focusing on vertical theory, this workshop will build a unique and interesting vocabulary of entrances into s-lock and unexpected exits out of it. We will explore various ways of transitioning in the air to achieve these movements; threading, twisting and flaring. S-lock will cease to be a mundane wrap and become a transitional position in which to create innovative and seamless choreography.
Level: Open/all levels, but some aerial experience is recommended
Hammock has been a long time favorite of mine because I feel like I can simply DANCE! Without the entanglement of a fabric tail or the defined edge of a steel bar my body feels as though it can move as freely as if there were nothing there at all!
In this workshop we will explore specific skills, pathways and transitions that I think are particularly dance like in nature. We will also examine the space between the fabric loop and floor, how these two can meet and interconnect to create spins, circles, transitions, mounts and supported floor choreography to enhance your hammock vocabulary or create an entirely new performative experience. No background in dance or hammock is required.
