The Wilderness of TRIOS taught by Patrick Crowley
The roles of supporter, flier, and the "assistor" will be the basis of this trio form.  We will particular pay attention to "the one who is left out" and give tools to transform this role into the assister, the linchpin to this trio form. 

Linchpin skills to be explored:

  • Engaging one's center with the center of the duet
  • Being a second support
  • Being a moving post
  • Sandwiching
  • Sloughing
  • Counterbalancing
  • Tracking direction and momentum of the duet
  • Soloing with the duet

In addition, we open to a generosity in supporting and a wildness in being supported.  We move fluidly between the roles to create safe abandonment to new territory.
