What might advanced dancers get from our Aerial classes? Dive into opportunities to morph your kinesthetic awareness with  technical knowledge and you will find yourself moving with greater ease when in the air, on the studio floor, or walking down the street. Improvisational structures provide guidance for explorations while also allowing options to explore your own movement expression. Aerial Dance skills are integrated with meditative imagery, hands-on partnering work, and informal discussions that allow students to learn from one another and explore in a myriad of ways.

What might Beginners get from our Aerial classes? Tap into your inner self and improve your kinesthetic awareness with our meditative and improvisational approach to Aerial Dance. Learn basic hangs for low-flying trapeze and how to improvise your own dance within set perimeters. Technical clues are given for basic skills about flying, floating, and laying out in space and these  clues allow you to dance with a sense of ease and delight.

Each year Fly-by-Night offers scholarships to adult dancers of color who wish to study Aerial Dance with the company. This FREE audition class brings together a community of dancers that might not otherwise have the chance to try Aerial Dance. The audition is usually held over the weekend of the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday. Due to the high number of COVID cases in NYC, we have postponed this class but hope to offer at a later date this spring. Send us an email if interested:
