Nick loves beats! In this workshop, we will cover the fundamentals of harnessing energy and momentum in order to work with and defy gravity. With controlled dynamic movement, we can discover new pathways and inversions that would be difficult or impossible to do otherwise. We will discuss theory, practice basic and advanced beats, and go through a whole beat family tree.
$35 ($45 for non Rope Meeting participants)

As a performer and coach, Nick specializes in dynamic sequencing, releases, c-shaping, and ground-based aerial/floorial on rope, fabric, and straps. He is so excited to share his wealth of experience with NECCA and its incredible staff and student body. Nick is following his dream. Let him bring you on an adventure.
