Special Workshops


Emil Dahl
Wednesday & Thursday, 1pm-3pm - $80


Emil Dahl - 2 Day, 4 Hour Special Workshop.

This workshop will have two primary focuses: training techniques and processes for technical juggling, and the development and creation of juggling sequences.

During this Special Workshop, Emil will share the training processes and techniques he implemented in order to build towards flashing 9 clubs in 2013. While Emil used these strategies to learn 9 clubs, they will benefit anyone working on pushing their technical skill to the next level.  Attendees will walk away with concrete techniques applicable to their juggling training.

The other focus of Emil's workshop will be on developing and creating juggling sequences.  The techniques taught during this segment are what Emil used in order to create his Magnet Opus routine.  Anyone looking to expand their juggling creativity and creation processes will benefit from this portion of the workshop.

Originating from Sweden, with the Scandinavian juggling style in his heart, Emil started juggling at the age of seven when he taught himself how to juggle three balls. When he turned ten, his mother gave him his first clubs and it has been his dearest object since then. Making his living out of juggling from an early age, he has performed for a number of different audiences, at various stages and arenas, as well as Swedish, Finnish and Danish national television.

After high school he moved to Copenhagen and studied for two years at the highly regarded Circus school AFUK - Akademiet For Utæmmet Kreativitet. He received a bachelor of art from DOCH - University of Dance and Circus in Stockholm, and is now touring the world with his act Magnet Opus.

Aleksandra Savina - 2 Day, 4 Hour Special Workshop.

Aleksandra Savina is a highly respected international hoop artist from Ukraine. She studied at Kiev State College of Variety and Circus Arts under the tutelage of world renowned juggling instructor, Yuriy Pozdnyakov. In 2014, she competed in Cirque de Demain and was awarded a Special Prize.

Aleksandra’s Special Workshop will encompass 4 hours over a 2 day period. It is open to beginner through advanced level hoop jugglers and artists who want to take their hoop technique and style to the next level. It is recommended that you have three hoops to attend this workshop.

Each day will begin with a warm-up and finger exercises, important in building the dexterity for hoop manipulation. Aleksandra will teach technical tips on a variety of throws, contact hoop juggling on the shoulders and back, and rolling hoops on the floor. These techniques will be applicable all the way from one-hoop manipulation for the novice to more difficult multi-hoop patterns. During the workshop, Aleksandra will also lead a session on group interaction with hoops.

This is an excellent opportunity to get hands-on training and style tips from one of the world’s top hoop artists.
