April 24, 2017
8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
- Member $55.00

The vertical apparatus allows for an unusual and compelling way to interact with a partner using height, tension and vertical space. The relationships and transitions between them can be as beautiful as they are dynamic and surprising.
This workshop will introduce the various ways to partner on the vertical apparatus. Working with some of our favorite examples of partnering; we will explore the various categories of partner work, including: role reversal, hand to hand (with and without tail), tension pole, flier & tail, mirroring and more.
