- Are you interested in trying aerial arts?
- Are you up for a new challenge?
- Do you thrive on community?
- Do you like to dance?
This class is designed for people who have never done aerial, but who have some current fitness practice and some awareness of their body in space (eg., dancing on the ground, yoga, etc.)
Participants will be taught basic aerial skills and safe practices. Over the course of 6 weeks, participants will learn new poses and sequences. The end result will be a choreographed routine. Expect to bee challenged, gain strength, and have fun!
Francis and Stephanie collaborated to choreograph a dance that includes dancing on the ground and in the air.
About the Instructor
Stephanie teaches aerial silks and sling. Stephanie has been aerial dancing since 2008, beginning with Wild Rumpus Circus (who also offers amazing circus classes for kids!) and Cycropia Aerial Dance. Stephanie expanded from trapeze into silks, rings, aerial pole, rope, and sling. Beyond a love of flying, Stephanie found that circus offers a warm, supportive community that lifts up all its members. With a career in arts administration, Stephanie is also very concerned with building community relationships, so that no one with a love of death-defying feats ever has to be turned away. Stephanie has trained with Nimble Arts Teacher Training program and Born to Fly. Find out more at Swing State Aerial.
