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!
