Technical Foundations for Vertical Apparatus


Spinning, climbing, sticking, falling. Building the foundation for a high technical level is the study of what we do! In this workshop we'll learn a range of exercises meant to help us both condition and understand our bodies in the air. We'll use aerial straps as a learning tool for rope and fabric, push our efficiency in the vertical elements, and study drop technique. Come ready to geek out and ready to learn a method of partnered conditioning that gets us past the limits of our strength.


Participants should have a basic understanding of vertical elements, including experience with star drops (corazon), basic climbs, and be able to invert comfortably in the air.

About the Instructor:

Teo Spencer, during a year abroad, tripped over a burgeoning Argentine circus community and became an acrobat. Immediately a dream was born of creating opportunities for others to do the same and inspiring them to do so. Teo was accepted into a highly competitive three-year program of study in circus arts at the University of San Martin where he specializes in aerial fabric. After completing his studies and performing for premier companies such as Fuerza Bruta and Prix Dami, including presentations for the Presidency of Argentina, Teo returned to North America to win “best overall performance” at the 2014 Denver Aerial Arts Festival. Teo currently performs around the world with Pilobolus Dance Theatre.
