Special Rope & Harness Workshops with Gisela Bostjancic

Intermediate Rope and Harness Workshop - Sunday, Dec 21, 1-3pm
Gisela Bostjancic was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She is an Aerial Dancer and Physical Performer.
In 2003, she began taking aerial dance classes with Cristina Tziouras and Leonardo Haedo at the Brenda Angiel's School of Aerial Dance. It was there that she discovered her passion for dance and air.
Since then, she has taken classes in various circus disciplines (trapeze, fabric, hoop/lyra, trampoline, chinese pole), as well as contemporary dance. She's also training as a physical performer with Gilda Tesone.
Gisela has taught aerial dance with harness since 2006, and she has been part of the teaching staff at "Espacio Hache" in Buenos Aires since 2009. In 2013 she participated as choreographer and performer in "Machitun en la Cava", a project that focuses on social integration through the arts.
That same year, she co-founded "Proyecto Vicuna", where she currently serves as co-director, choreographer, instructor and performer.
In August 2014, she recived the Glenn P. Davis scholarship for emerging choreographers, allowing her to participate in the 16th Annual International Aerial Dance Festival, organized by Frequent Flyers.
Gisela currently resides in Boulder, Colorado, where she takes contemporary dance classes with Katie Elliott and is part of the Frequent Flyers Student Company.

These workshops are aimed at anyone who wants to experience dancing with a harness.
Each workshop is two hours, organized in three stages:
. First a warm-up, to prepare the mind and body.
. Then a second stage in the air, where different sequences will be developed with the basic movements, using the harness and a static rope (we work with movements beneath the rope, on a pendulum and in circles).
. And finally, a third stage to stretch and exchange feelings and experiences.
