Workshops Belle Hannah


We are proud and happy to announce that on Saturday the 12th of December we are hosting Belle Hannah at Aerial Academics:

Belle Hannah (#bellehannahkok)

 

Belle Hannah is an uprising circus artist, specialized in the discipline aerial hoop. During her performances, she amazes the audience with vibrant tricks, which require a lot of strength and flexibility. During her education at the Fontys Academy for Circus and Performance Art (ACaPA) in Tilburg, she was the only student which chose the specialization aerial hoop, which meant that she was able to spend a lot of  time with her teacher. One of the parts in her education that she liked the most was research. Here, she would devote a lot of time discovering new tricks with her teacher.*

On Saturday the 12th of December, we will host three workshops from Belle. The first and last workshops are devoted to her favorite aerial discipline, the aerial hoop. The first workshop is meant for participants with little to no experience in the aerial hoop, whereas the last one is meant for intermediate level. With her strength and flexibility, she is capable of creating the most beautiful shapes in the air. In both workshop she will share her expertise and teach both tricks as little sequences. The second workshop of the day is devoted to increase one’s flexibility. After performing a good warming-up, she will work towards a couple of basis contortion poses.

Do not miss this amazing opportunity to participate in these workshops, sign up now!
