Megan Lowe in Ireland
Flourish

March 3rd, 2024

Sunday 12pm-5pm

Irish Aerial Creation Centre

Limerick, Ireland

 

Soar with San Francisco, California dance-maker and aerialist Megan Lowe, who is visiting Ireland for the first time! Together, we will explore flight via rope and harness vertical dance—activating walls and low flying floor space with fun and invigorating dancing. Embark on a creative process that includes wall running, rotations, inversions, flips, and opportunities for partnering. This workshop is geared toward experienced dancers and/or aerialists, with some familiarity with moving in a harness and using belay devices like rigs and gri-gris. Participants will have opportunities to learn via improvisation, developing specific skills, building sequences, expressing their own artistic voice, collaborating, and engaging in rigorous joyful dancing! All gear will be supplied. Megan is super excited to dance with you!

Testimonies About Teaching

Empowering to Try New Things

“It’s so rare for me to see my background reflected in movement instructors. The safe container cultivated through the gentle buildup of warm-up exercises and explicitly practicing verbal cues of boundary-setting empowered me to try new things and go beyond my usual notions of what I can and can't do. I also appreciated the presence of many POC helping me feel less like an outlier.” 

Fostering Respect

"I liked how we, as a whole group, were encouraged to foster respect, appreciation, and friendliness throughout the session."

Wonderfully Constructed

"I’m still riding high from the experience and joy I felt being back in my body. I’m already looking forward to July’s workshop and wondering how I can get involved more and more. Thank you again for such a wonderfully constructed workshop. You’re a gem!"

Inclusion
Nature

"Loved the inclusion nature of the class, the diverse dance experience and backgrounds of participants. Excellent teacher!"

Tangible Physical Support

"Megan incorporates a contact/partner counterbalance technique that feels so powerful, I still think about the people I leaned against and what that tangible physical support feels like."

Clear Instructions

Loved Megan's class! She gives clear instructions and allows for the group to get comfortable with each other, which is very important for contact improv. Her pacing was perfect for all levels, and I felt like everyone was invited to do what they needed."
