Silks Workshops

with Jordann Baker

We’ve got more workshops for y’all! This time, it’s a lovely quartet of silks strengtheners from our old friend Jordann Baker!

Jordann began her aerialist career in New York City in 2006, and has been flying high ever since!  She has performed both internationally and around the United States in theatrical productions, arts festivals, fashion shows, circuses, music events, and even the occasional wedding.

She is passionate about creating dynamic, site-specific performances and genre-bending shows, including Shapeshifter Circus.  Jordann is dually based in Austin, TX and Los Angeles, where she runs The Concord, an aerial training and performance space.

Jordann enjoys working with students of all levels, from absolute beginners to seasoned professionals and has 15 years of experience in the air.  She specializes in silks, rope and hammock and also dynamic momentum techniques.

Each workshop will be taught on silks, but will have skills that can transfer to other apparatuses, such as rope or hammock. Each workshop is 2 hours long, costs $90 to attend, and need a minimum of four signups to make. No workshop will include a full warm-up, so attendees are encourage to come up to 30 minutes early to take themselves through a full warm-up.

All workshops, except Get Vertically Strong!, are intermediate/advanced level and will require the ability to invert in the air repeatedly. Get Vertically Strong! is open to all students of all levels on any apparatus, although it will be taught on silks.

  • Windmills: Technique & Creativity on Wednesday, June 2nd at 6pm
  • Get Vertically Strong! on Saturday, June 5th at 1pm
  • Stratospheric Silks on Sunday, June 6th at 10:30am
  • Fancy Climbs on Sunday, June 6th at 1:30pm

She will also be available for Private Lessons June 1st-6th; contact Front Desk to book time or for more information.
