Workshops with Selene Ballesteros-Minguer

This is a great opportunity to train with artists from around the world!

Hammock: Fundamentals of Spinning and Dynamics Workshop

November 29: 1:00pm-3:00pm

This hammock workshop will be comprised of two sections. The first part will focus on dynamic technique, and some drops. And the second will be all about spinning! Sequences and technique that work well in spin, different ways to generate spin, and we’ll finish off with some fast spin work!

Aerial Rope/Silks: Dynamic Technique

November 29: 3:30pm-5:30pm

This rope/ silks workshop will focus on dynamic rope technique, tempos, drills, and prerequisites for releases and different roll-ups. All of this can be learned and practised on aerial silks with some slight timing adjustments. And as always, we will end the class with some special requests. Feel free to let me know of your requests before the day of the workshop!


About Selene Ballesteros-Minguer​

Selene is a circus artist originally from Latin America, but raised in Vancouver, BC. From a young age, she was highly active, trying out all the sports time would allow, before trying and loving gymnastics. In her mid-teens, by chance, she started to train circus, and found the perfect blend of athletic and artistic abilities within the art form. She began her circus training in contortion and silks, but later decided to specialise in aerial rope and double hammock at the National Circus School of Montreal. Since graduating from ENC, she has been touring the globe performing with Cirque Éloize, Stufish, and most recently Cirque du Soleil, as well as collaborating with various studios to host workshops. Selene is a lover of creation and questioning, movement and exploration, and helping others find their own creative expression.
