In this workshop you will learn the fundamental techniques of wire dancing. To begin we will address foot positioning, posture, and using a fan for balance. We will apply these things in static balances such as sitting, lying down, lunge, split, and arabesque. We will then move on to the elements of wire dance: running, jumping, sliding, and turning.
