This four-week workshop series will bring Aerial Dance choreography to life in a public performance at Om Factory’s Fall 2018 Student Showcase on Saturday October 20.
Keely will spend the first two weeks teaching awesome and fun choreography and setting it to music, before taking the final two weeks to get you performance ready! Expect to spend a lot of time working on smoothing out transitions both inside and outside of the hammock and the ways to move from floor work to the hammock seamlessly.
Participation in the final performance on October 20 is highly encouraged, but not required.
Must have taken a minimum of five Aerial Dance Classes (any level) at Om Factory
About the Instructor:
Keely started her training with classical ballet as well as tap, jazz, hip hop, etc. at the age of four, checking off numerous embarrassing costumes and Nutcracker appearances early in life. Later, dance continued to play a major role as she became involved with the dance department at Case Western Reserve University which focused on classic Graham technique and finally culminated in a B.A. in Theater with a Concentration in Dance as well as a B.A. in Biology. After dodging the prospect of med school she finally made her way to New York City where she took her first aerial class at OM Factory with Megan Hornaday and they haven't been able to get rid of her since. Aside from dance performances at the Brooklyn Dance Festival and the New York Jazz Choreography Project she has also had the privilege of performing aerial acts at Dixon Place and The Muse Brooklyn and can't wait to continue to perform and explore all that aerial has to offer.
