This workshop includes warm-ups, training and exercises intended to bring awareness to the movement habits stilts require. At the beginner level we work with proper stilt alignment and gaits, and can move into choreography and transitions. We will also work on Release Technique and Contact Improvisation principles, which will help increase spatial awareness and responsiveness to weight and touch. The pace and the content of this work will be tailored to our participants.
