Aerial Skills - Spring 2020 - REGISTRATION CLOSED

Learn the basics of aerial silks, from how to climb to how to drop – SAFELY! Classes will begin with warm-up and stretching, followed by intro to new techniques and review of old ones. Students should already be in reasonably good shape and free from injuries, and MUST be able and willing to follow the instructor’s directions in order to stay safe.

Instructor: Lillian Richards is a long-time resident of Michigan who has a love of teaching and learning. She has been training in aerial silks at Ringstar Studio for the last three years. She is also a member of Ring of Steel’s Cirque Surya. She has performed at multiple venues such as Bay City’s Tall Ships Celebration, YpsiFest, and the Saline Celtic Festival. Currently, she is the aerial arts director of Gymco in Grand Rapids.

Wardrobe: Students should wear clothes that are form fitting or close to it, as loose, baggy clothing can get caught in the silks. Clothes should cover the knees, hips, and underarms. Students who choose to wear tights should make sure that they are footless tights, not footed and NOT convertible. Long hair should be restrained in a bun or pony tail and students should refrain from wearing any jewelry, including rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, anklets, etc. Silks are practiced barefoot so there is no need for special shoes or socks.

Theater Tech - Spring 2020 - Fantastic Mr. Fox - REGISTRATION CLOSED 

Wanted: Masters of the Universe. We are looking for our next adventurous tech team. Students will transport our actors to the world of Mr. Fox by learning about what goes on and into the behind the scenes of putting on a theater performance and become our tech crew for the school play. Students will be divided into the main categories (sound/lighting, costumes, make-up, props, and publicity) that they will learn about and be asked to perform those duties during the rehearsals and performances. This season’s show is VERY prop, costume, and makeup heavy, so students will need to be willing to explore all areas, be open minded on their assignments, and focused on the end result.... the performance.

 

Instructor: Heidi Ellis has a masters degree from Eastern Michigan University in Costume Design and Construction where she helped teach the undergraduate students while helping to build the theater productions. She worked for 11 years at the Henry Ford as a supervisor in the costume shop where she trained the new employees and made clothing.

 

Snack: We have found in the past that the students never save enough of their snacks, so this time around we will be providing a healthy snack. If there are dietary issues you must let us know. If a snack is sent from home, please know that we are and will be PEANUTS and TREE NUTS FREE.
