In this week of high flying adventure, students will learn basic aerial fabric and trapeze skills as well as improvisational and performance techniques. Throughout the week, students will work together to create a themed performance to present at the culmination of the camp. In the past, themes have included The Hero Myth, Bridge Building, Dreams, Elements, and Pirates. They will develop characters, movement, and basic costumes to help bring their aerial story to life.
