  • Workshops are every Sunday through Oct 24.
  • Come to stilt in the 2021 Extravaganza, or just to learn and have fun!
  • All ages welcome: Kids 8 and older, tweens, teens and adults welcome to come learn. Bring a teen or adult helper to give physical support as you learn.
  • Clothing: Wear shoes or boots with sturdy soles. We also recommend wearing either jeans or tall soccer socks. Additionally, if you have wrist guards or Ace knee tubes, consider bringing those.
  • Waiver: We will ask adult participants and parents of stilters under 18 to sign a waiver.
  • Face masks: We would like to ask that people wear masks, at least when we are working with them closely. Physical distancing is also recommended.
