Fourteenth Annual Fall Festival – featuring Scarlet Thistle


Event Details


Save the date!  Saturday, October 14 brings our 14th annual fall festival!  This year’s featured performers are Scarlet Thistle!

Scarlet Thistle will present two workshops on Sunday, October 15.  10:00am-12:00pm – A Dancers’ Orbit:  A group of “flying skirts” amaze the audience as they fill the performance space with swirls of color and motion. ATS® has always embraced spins and movements that are amplified by costuming in action. This workshop details the visual power of spins while breaking down different types of turning moves. Starting small, we work on techniques to execute a solid spin, then move into spinning in small spaces with dance partners close, then end with exciting and challenging spinning moves. A spinning development plan will be shared, along with tips to reduce dizziness, protect your feet and knees, and how to stop!

1:00-3:00pm – Make it Big: formations for groups & ways to play:  This workshop takes you beyond standard duets and trios, exploring formations for five of more dancers. Using Classic and Modern ATS® vocabulary, we’ll play with lateral fades, finding and keeping sightlines, and drill dancing in odd-shaped performance spaces.

Prices, location, and additional information to follow soon.
