July 2 – August 6, 2024

 Enjoy the in-the-air thrill of Aerial Hammock Dance, while staying within reach of the floor!
Tone up the entire body – arms, legs and core – learning expressive dance skills in this soft, remarkably versatile apparatus.

Prepare for your ascent into the aerial hammock with floor exercises to tone and stretch. Enjoy a fabulous, unique workout with restful, rejuvenating closure.

The techniques and strength-building exercises of the hammock help your approach to all aerial mediums. Aerial apparatus cross-training improves core control, grip strength, and upper body strength. The more classes you take, the more these benefits increase!

Participants will need to hoist and stabilize their own body weight. Aerial Yoga is a good precursor to Aerial Hammock Dance.

Mature teens may attend by permission of our Aerial Faculty.

Kindly let your instructor know of any injuries. Contra-indications for aerial classes: glaucoma, heart conditions, fused spine, and pregnancy beyond doctor recommendation.

Please pre-register for all aerial classes at least an hour in advance. Arrive 15 minutes early to ensure you can safely enjoy your Aerial class. Since space is limited and setup time is necessary, we are not able to accommodate late arrivals to Aerial classes. Registration is for the entire Series.

Clothing Requirements:
For your safety: Tight-fitting clothing, shirts with sleeves, leggings.
For preserving the apparatus: No zippers or metal. Jewelry off. No perfume.

Jody Morse

Jody’s students leave sessions feeling equally calmed and invigorated, alert but at peace, and grounded yet flying high. You’ll feel supported by her care and encouragement, and more skilled than when you entered class.

Connection is Jodie’s Why. For Jody, the past three decades worth of dancing – on the ground and in the air – have proven to be a great vehicle for self-connection and discovery, as well as wonderful relationships with others. In her classes, Jodie encourages students to engage in self-exploration while also meeting and connecting with their fellow movers, dancers, meditators, and flyers. 

A long-time lover of all things anatomy, kinesiology, and somatic sensation, Jody has Riverdanced across Europe, ‘flown’ over stages for an international opera company, professionally danced aboard a cruise ship, and taught Pilates and guided meditation classes in six countries on three continents. Her experience in dance and aerial arts goes back for decades.

With a deep desire to help people heal and grow, Jody aims for you – her student – to get to know the self, the body, the mind, and the heart through your journey with movement and stillness.

Jessica Eirado Enes

Jessica thrills her audience and her students. Some movers inspire us with the longing and determination to move as beautifully they do – Jessica is one of those dancers and teachers! Jessica’s commitment to authentic movement, combined with her high skill level, seamlessly encourages us all to elevate our own.

Jessica studied aerial silks while still a teenager, stemming from her lifelong love of tree climbing. After some years of focus on her dance career, she began practicing aerial again while working with the company Not Standing, which blends dance and circus. 

Jessica has been working as a freelance dancer/choreographer and movement teacher for the last 10 years, working and touring with several European companies and choreographers, such as Alexander Vantournhout, Agostina D’Alessandro, Jason Mabana, Zemiata, Compagnia Petranura Danza, Loris Petrillo, and Roberto Zappalà, among others. 

Jessica is the co-artistic director with Eddie Oroyan of their company My Homeless Lover. She likes to experiment, research movement and keep things new, while appreciating the need for familiarity. She is a guest artist with the Minneapolis-based company, called Black Label Movement, for a work that will premiere in the prestigious American Dance Festival 2024 in October.

Jessica Eirado Enes was born and raised in Italy. After several trips that made her fall in love with the Hawaiian culture and land, she officially moved to O’ahu in 2024 to begin permaculture farming of the land, while staying connected with her dancing profession. You’ll enjoy her earthiness!
