All or Nothing’s Flying High Masterclasses for Professional Dancers, Physical Performers and Aerialists
Over the coming months we are excited to be bringing harness specialists to Scotland to run workshops and share their skills.
First up in December we have Chantal McCormick and Lee Clayden of Ireland’s foremost aerial company, Fidget Feet at DanceBase in Edinburgh. We have also invited Wired Aerial Theatre from Liverpool and they are at the MacRobert Arts Centre in Stirling for bungee assisted dance, Lindsey Butcher of Gravity & Levity will also be doing wall running and harness skills at Eden Court in Inverness in March. More info will follow.
With more to be confirmed we’re aiming to spread that aerial love.
Full details below, please contact us for bookings and more info on 07989 978598 or firstname.lastname@example.org. All masterclasses must be booked in advance.
Counterweight Harness Flying with Fidget Feet
Saturday 7th 3.30-5pm & Sunday 8th December 1.30-5pm
Studio 3, Dance Base, Grassmarket, Edinburgh EH1 2JU
This class will be structured around learning basic harness techniques in a side pick up harness. We will be working both close to the ground as well as higher in the air and you will learn about counterweighting – being both flown and the chance to try flying people. No aerial experience necessary – the class is for professional performers, dancers, actors and aerialists. Please wear several snug layers around your hips, legs and waist and bring trainers.
Fidget Feet are a pint-sized aerial circus from Ireland. What does that mean? It means we’re a small company with big ideas. We hang and fly from theatres, cranes, ship masts, castle walls, and pretty much anything else we can think of. We’re happy performing inside or outdoors. We challenge you to find new places for us to bring our trademark playfulness. We like mixing theatre, music, aerial circus, dance and video art. And before you ask, we don’t have any animals, we’re not that kind of circus.
Some of our shows have played to over 80,000 people worldwide including performances at the likes of Glastonbury, the National Arts Festival of South Africa, Fleadh Cheoil, Rose of Tralee, and the World’s Festival of Western Australia to name a few.
And have you ever wanted to fly? Come and learn how. We’ll teach you at our annual Irish Aerial Dance Fest, every June for three weeks in Donegal, Ireland.
