The focus of this course is to continue skill development in partner acrobatics, dance lifts, movement quality, and collaborative creation no matter where you are in your performing journey. For this to be possible, we will have separate meeting times based on skill needs for the acrobatic portion and everyone will come together on Mondays for physical theatre, dance, and collaboration. At the end of the term, students are invited to perform what they have created in class at our summer fundraiser!
