Des Moines Social Club

Aerial Improv


This workshop is directed towards working with creative sequencing and researching movement by focusing on guiding you through the process of discovering your own pathways and innovative choreography. Once we understand this first process we work on finessing, stylizing, and finding the musicality. We also always try to end the workshop with an in-class performance for yourself and your peers! This workshop is tailored to any aerial apparatus.


Lauren Cook and Fabrizio Spiteri of Volodesto Aerials are coming to Des Moines July 27th thru the 29th, and presenting four amazing workshops you won’t want to miss!

This weekend workshop series will focus on helping you become more aware of yourself in aspects of space, time, and connection to the floor, and the connection to your apparatus. We will work on the apparatus of your choice and allow you to become fully immersed in your technique and our research and creation process. We will give you a new knowledge in analyzing your body and a choreographer’s roadmap. In addition, you will learn new tools to help you create and expand your artistic direction and technique.

We encourage you to fully immerse yourself into our weekend with Iowa Circus Arts. But it is also completely fine to take just one! We look forward to training with you
