Special Lyra Workshops THIS WEEKEND with Daniel Sullivan
Daniel Sullivan, with a personality just as memorable as his red hair, has been traditionally trained in Irish Step Dancing since the age of four. At thirteen, he joined Circus Smirkus, the only international youth circus in North America. It was his five consecutive years touring with Circus Smirkus where he developed his passion for aerial hoop, the circus ring, and essentially everything circular. After graduating with honors from his high school, he simultaneously attended the San Francisco Circus Center, to enhance his craft, and studied dance at the University of San Francisco. Daniel was soon accepted into Montreal's prestigious La'ecole nationale de cirque (National Circus School) where he finished his studies this June in aerial hoop, training under the fabulous Nathalie Hebert. Now, he is performing for audiences around the world! As an artist, Daniel hopes to embody power, dynamism, splendor, and bring a smile to your face.
Saturday, Oct 25, 4:30-6:30pm - Lyra 3/4
Sunday, Oct 26, 1:15-3:15pm - Lyra 3/4
* All classes held at the Frequent Flyers Aerial Dance Studio, 3022 E. Sterling Circle, Boulder, CO 80301 *
These two-hour workshops will start with a 20 minute warm up to get the heart pumping, improve flexibility, and avoid injury. The classes will focus more on technique than performance. It will progress from static poses and sequences, to a more dynamic technique on hoop. If you have not had enough already, they will finish with 10 to 15 minutes of group aerial conditioning.
Come and join Daniel for an aerial hoop class in a positive and encouraging atmosphere!
