Inspired by the movie Pleasantville, Bird is the Word will take you on a journey into the squeaky clean, black and white splendour of the 1950s, transitioning into the colourful wacky swinging 60s!

Straps Masterclass with Bridget Reiger
Saturday December 15th, 4-630pm
Having trouble with your planches and flags? Have you already mastered them and would like to know what the next steps are?
Come along to this straps masterclass and refine your skills or even begin your journey to developing these highly sought after skills. OTHER AERIALISTS ARE WELCOME as these skills are transferable onto Lyra and Trapeze and even rope and silks! Maybe you will even fall in love with straps?!
This workshop will also cover strength and conditioning, active flexibility and the key elements to dynamic swinging!
Looking forward to seeing you there!
Rope Workshop with Alex Allan
Sunday December 16, 430-7pm
This workshop has been designed to give participants a new perspective on the creation of contemporary rope work. Students will not only learn a new vocabulary of momentum-based skills but they will learn them as a part of larger phrases of choreography. Skills will be explored as transitions and technique will be focused on to create a quality of movement that is fluid, seamless and powerful. We will also explore C-shaping as a means moving efficiently up and down the rope in rotational movements.
Level: Intermediate/Advanced – Participants should feel confident with a range of beats and dynamic-based movement and be able to perform multiple, clean straight-arm inversions in the air and straight-armed hip keys (hip-lock).
