Katie has trained in wall running with Clare Anderson, and explored different ways in which to use a harness with Lindsay Butcher at the European Aerial Dance Festival. Here Katie took classes in bungee harness, counter-balance contact improvisation with a partner in harnesses, performer flying using ladders to both fly a partner and be flown by a partner. This was using a two point harness to allow Katie to use her gymnastics training to perform somersaults and acrobatic leaps. The course also included learning a wall running vertical dance.
