Visiting Instructor Krystyn Tsagarakis

Dynamic Drops Workshop

Friday April 8, 2016 • 6pm-8pm

Aerial Fabric Intermediate & Advanced Levels

Have your audience sitting on the edge of their seats! This intermediate level workshop focuses on bringing show-stopping technique and bold movement to new and favorite drops.

Pre-requisites: Students must be able to execute the following with good form. Climb the fabric, invert from one climb, execute a hip-key, and be familiar with a double ankle hang. It’s ideal if students are comfortable with single star and salto/dive.

What to Expect: This workshop focuses on a variety of drops for intermediate and advanced students. Most of the drops involve a forward or side rotation. Slack drops and fast momentum drops are also covered, so it is ideal for students to protect the backs of the knees and under-arms.
