This workshop is open to any participants who meet the travel guidelines from the state of Vermont.
Also note: This workshop is subject to change or cancellation at any time.

Tackling release moves on rope and fabric can be daunting. Knowing how to fall on a mat is essential. Using momentum and good body mechanics rather than force makes release movements fun. We’ll give you the tools to confidently train these skills on your own and the information you need to begin catching consistently and comfortably. We’ll have a FOAM PIT! and a pit mat to make it all a little easier, so bring your brave self and see what you can accomplish. When you need a break from release material we’ll roll through a catalogue of movements that Teo has created in collaboration with other artists and finds inspiring.

Teo Spencer tripped over a burgeoning Argentine circus community during a year abroad and became an acrobat. He immediately dreamt of creating opportunities for others to do the same and inspiring them to do so. Teo was accepted into a highly competitive three-year program of study in circus arts at the University of San Martin where he specializes in aerial fabric. After completing his studies and performing for premier companies such as Fuerza Bruta and Prix Dami, including presentations for the Presidency of Argentina, Teo returned to North America to win “best overall performance” at the 2014 Denver Aerial Arts Festival. Teo currently performs around the world with Pilobolus Dance Theatre.
