Pole Passion Presents Astra Beck's Aerial Silks & Hoop Workshop

Pole Passion Presents: Astra Beck's Aerial Silks & Hoop Workshops
On Saturday 14th November 2009 Pole passion will be hosting a fabulous workshop in aerial silks and Hoop. The workshop will be run by Astra Beck. The workshop will be held at Taylors Retreat in Surrey.

Event details:
11am-1pm 2 Hour Taster in Aerial Silk
2pm-4pm 2 Hour Taster in Aerial Hoop
Cost: £55 each lesson or £100 for the two sessions
What to Wear: Comfortable training clothing that covers the legs and stomach. Bare feet or Ballet/Jazz shoes. Ankle supports and leg warmers can also be of benefit. No jewellery is to be worn.

Astra has been working in the circus entertainment industry for the last nine years as an aerialist and circus performer. Specialising in aerial hoop and silks but also skilled at static trapeze, doubles trapeze, rope and cloudswing. she is now hoping to pass on her knowledge of the aerial arts to anyone who is interested in learning. She is also a qualified yoga teacher and has discovered a love of teaching during recent years through teaching pole dancing for fun, fitness and confidence.
Astra will be teaching 2 hour workshop tasters in hoop and silks as a try out session leading to a possible six week course for those who may be interested to learn these skills in more depth. These will be suitable for beginners. No previous experience is expected but enthusiasm and ability to do an unassisted pull up and inversions will definitely help as this class will be challenging.

Hoop and silks are classic pieces of circus aerial equipment. During a taster session we will learn how to use the equipment safely and learn a routine covering some basic moves.
During a follow on - six week course, subject to availability, the student will learn a more developed routine using tricks, drops, rolls, holds and transitions that will eventually be put to music and performed in the last session.

Benefits: You will develop core strength (particularly in the upper body and stomach regions), flexibility, agility, confidence and a new skill!

There has been a lot of interest for this first workshop of its kind at Taylor's Retreat so we anticipate spaces will selling fast … so hurry hurry hurry!
