Becoming an Aerial Professional: Auditions and Contracts - Platt

$50 per classPurchase required to enroll

Okay, I'm ready.... I think I can do it. I've trained, I've prepared, I've choreographed, I've trained, I've promoted and I've trained! Now, Why Am I Not A Professional!? It's time to talk about the gritty, grimy, 24/7 hustle of moving from the studio to becoming a freelance artist, and moving from freelance to professional contracts. What are the steps I should take? Do I need to move? What should I do next? How do I get seen?

This workshop will help answer your questions and steer you in the direction of tried and true performers who take these steps every day in the life of an aerialist. You will receive advice, guidance, and contacts of industry professionals in order to help you along the path to becoming a professional aerialist.

Prerequisites: No Prerequisites, but you should have the ability to take notes and bring a stretching band if you have one.
