What is different about Dancing in the Air?

Careless students can sometimes put themselves and others at risk, which is why we ask students to sign a release, similar to those used by wall climbing establishments.

Fun for people who looking for a thrill, an adrenalin rush or a once in a lifetime experience. Fitness for those seeking a fresh pathway to fitness and well being, that enables physical development beyond that which is possible with conventional sports.

How do you view the relationship between the artist and the equipment?

We believe that because the equipment is in the air and space it becomes a link between heaven and earth. So for the act to work the artist first has to acknowledge this link.

We believe aerialists share a special connection, because not everyone feels comfortable in the air. In duo and group acts the artists only have their equipment and each other.

I want the audience to see I am human like them and to connect with them at every point of the story.
