PACD 103 Aerial Arts I

This course is open to students majoring in Commercial Dance and Performing Arts only.

Course Description: Students will learn the basic elements of the Aerial Arts using a variety of aerial apparatuses. Class will include work on silks/fabric, Spanish web, hammock/sling, and static trapeze. This art has been around for over 150 years in many circuses and has been reinvented with companies such as Cirque du Soleil, 7 Fingers, Cirque Eloize, and many more. This has transformed the art into 2 styles, the traditional circus style and the artistic cirque style. In this class we will not only learn aerial arts but also how to execute the movement to fit both a circus and cirque style.

Course Rotation: NYC: Fall and Spring.
