About

Hey Y'all,
Katherine Hutchinson here. It's crazy times out here in the world and I have been affected. I have been temporarily laid off from both of my jobs and can no longer teach lessons out of my personal studio. I was planning on launching this page next month anyway but given the current circumstances, I thought "now is as good a time as any."
So, when things were normal:
Air Ballet™️ is an aerial dance class designed by Katherine Hutchinson and taught at Athletic Playground in Oakland, California. A typical Air Ballet™ class is an hour long and includes a ballet barre followed by an intermediate level aerial silks sequence. Katherine teaches a very accessible, though traditional, ballet barre to non-traditional music (plies to Prince and tendus to Beyonce). The goal of the barre work is to teach students to extend fully through the legs and feet while also learning musicality, fluidity and epaulement. After barre, Katherine teaches a short intermediate sequence of wraps, locks and drops. The students are given 15 minutes to practice the aerial sequence before a floor sequence or arm motif is given. The last 15 minutes of class is dedicated to performance. The students take the sequence they just learned and perform it with as much gusto, attitude, sass, and style as they can muster. After a month of weekly repetition the Air Ballet™ students have in-depth understanding of the steps and the style.

Now, I'm working from home, creating content that my students can use to stay motivated and also in shape. I have a ballet barre workout you can do in your kitchen. I am offering 30 minute semi-private at-home conditioning/stretching lessons via Zoom. I am also brewing some creativity homework for my students and artist friends who feel stunted. The process of making these videos at home takes some special skills and funds. I am currently paying for a subscription to Vimeo, Zoom, Wix.com, and probably some form of icloud expansion package. Your donation can supplement my usual income, help me pay for subscriptions, or assist me with the rent for my studio.
Goals

When I reach 30 patrons I will make an at home dance sequence exclusively for my patrons.
