Lani Carson – Aerial Silks (Finding your Flight)

Lani Corson is an aerialist and variety performer based in NYC.  Growing up in Maine, Lani spent her formative years in the dance studio and on any stage that would have her, and later went on to receive a BFA in Musical Theatre from Syracuse University.  In her travels she was introduced to aerial arts – an extension of dance with an element of excitement.  What began as a hobby quickly became a passion, and she is now a full-time circus performer and aerial instructor.  Lani is Co-Managing Director of 2 Ring Circus, teaches at Aerial Arts NYC, Body & Pole and is a faculty member for Pace University.

“Finding your Flight”
For students a little farther along in their aerial journey, this workshop will expand on the fundamentals and explore unconventional entrances and exits to better known wraps and drops.  We will also play with the idea of momentum-based movement.
Prerequisites: ability to invert from the air and execute a hip key from the air
