For audiences, experience the best in aerial dance with artists from the U.S. and Canada presenting new work in the Showcase Performances, August 5-7, 2016, at the Dairy Arts Center. On August 2, join us for a sneak peek of the Showcase Performances in one of the best values at the festival: Intimate Encounters, in which the artists will demonstrate their art and answer questions from the audience in an up-close environment at the Charlotte York Irey Theatre on the CU Boulder campus.
Want to try a class? There are opportunities for beginners through advanced/professional aerialists. How about bungee dancing? Or beginning low-flying trapeze, handstands, acro-balance or gyrokinesis? Classes meet once per day for a week and last 90 minutes each, Monday through Friday for the week of August 1-5 or August 8-12, 2016. Held at Frequent Flyers’ Aerial Dance Studios and on the CU Boulder Campus, these classes are a terrific way to get in shape and have fun.
Complete schedule and info on tickets and class registration are available on Frequent Flyers' website.
Tickets for the Showcase Performances go on sale in mid-June 2016. Tickets for Intimate Encounters are available at the door only.
