In this interactive, hands-on workshop, you will have the opportunity to build and walk in your own stilts. The workshop covers two dates in which you will custom build and design your own stilts (students must provide their own shoes to be permanently secured to the stilts) and will include a combination of movement, safety and assembly. You will also then learn how to walk in the stilts that you create. Dance wear or gym wear is recommended. Minimum age is 13 years and you must pre-register and be available for both dates.
Two dates: Monday, April 10th & 24th: 6-9PM
