Along with our intro private lessons, we’re now offering group intro lessons again. Classes max out at 6 students, so bring your friends to try out some aerial fun! No experience required. This class is meant for complete beginners and goes down every Friday at 6PM. Registration is required in advance to participate.
Introducing our forth annual 2021 student showcase! We have 20 performers this year and we’re absolutely in love with what everyone choose to share with you all. Each performer picks their own song and choreographs their own routine (with help from their instructor mentors along the way).
We’re blessed to have such a versatile crew of performers who support one another so fiercely! 100% of the proceeds for this show go into making this showcase possible. We appreciate your support in making this happen. We hope you all enjoy the show.
Our students are SO excited to be able to perform for their loved ones in person this year. The show will take place this coming Sunday, November 7th at 3PM. We ask for guests to please utilize parking and restrooms at Taft’s (our neighborhood brewery), as we’ll be heading their way for our after party.
We will also be offering our showcase virtually at a later date for those unable to attend in person. We do ask that all guests attending please wear masks. We hope to be able to provide a safe space for all of our performers to shine.
You asked for it… Jessica Jay returns to EA to drop some more knowledge with us! Take a silks workshop with Jessica Jay on August 15. If you’ve already participated in her workshop last month, have no fear, she’ll be building on some skills just for you in her L2/3 workshop as well as offering something for the newcomers! Check the workshop descriptions below:
Take a silks workshop with guest artist Terri Kendall! On July 18, she’ll teach two 90-minute workshops that focus on a variety of skills, such as climb sequences and drops, in order to put them together into a routine to address transitions.
Calling all silks and rope students! Guest artist Jessica Jay will be teaching at the studio THIS Sunday, June 27! We’ve got a few spots left in her L1-2 silks workshop, as well as private time available. Check it out here
Build unique sequences, transitions and drops in the aerial silks, learning new and innovative fabric tricks and pathways in this 90 minute workshop. Explore surprise entrances, creative exits, threading, and throughways to complete the fanciest of tricks. Prerequisites: must be able to climb & execute aerial foot locks.
Want to take your first steps into the sky?! Take an Intro Private Lesson! This 45-minute class allows for one-on-one time with a qualified instructor to safely move you through getting your feet off the ground.
We will work on basic skills and conditioning in the air. We offer socially distant intro private lessons on sling, silks and lyra. We provide sanitized apparatuses so no one has to share equipment. Masks are required while grounded, apparatuses are spaced 8+ft apart, classes offered in a large 24ft ceiling space. This is the perfect introduction to aerials before signing up for one of our Level 1 workshops. Learn the basics while working low to the ground, and establish core skills for later advancing to our aerial workshop classes.
We are SO excited to share with you, our 2020 student showcase!! We are so grateful for our crew, for going the extra mile to ensure we could pull this off as safely as possible. None of this could happen with one person alone. It definitely takes a tribe, and fortunately we have an incredible tribe. We want to thank each and every one of our students and instructors for going the extra mile this year to help keep our community safe.
In lieu of ticket sales this year, we are asking for donations. We wanted everyone to be able to enjoy the show, regardless if you can afford it or not. When the world is hurting, people have always turned to the arts for a release or a mental break. We hope to give you a bit of that tonight. We will have the show available for viewing until after the New Year, so students can enjoy over the holidays. If you are able to donate, please give what you can. Every little bit helps us to continue doing what we love.
I know aerials has kept many of us going throughout this past year and beyond. It’s a feeling like no other, and it’s hard to describe unless you’ve felt it for yourself. We hope you enjoy what our students have to share. They have all worked so hard on this and have come so far on their aerials journey already! We sincerely hope you enjoy the show.
Yes, we’re still at it, and our students are killing it!! Even through COVID, our dedicated instructors and students have been hard at work. Although we can’t be in person this year to celebrate our victories, we CAN connect virtually.
We’ll post our 2020 Virtual Showcase at 7PM on Sunday, November 15th here in the news section of our website, as well as on all social media outlets, and via email to our mailing list. We will have our showcase available for viewing until after the New Year so students may enjoy watching with their loved ones this holiday season.
We are asking for donations this year in lieu of ticket sales. All donations will go towards our winter move back to Westside Academy of Gymnastics, rigging and our annual insurance policy – ensuring that we are maintaining a high level of safety for all of our students and instructors. Please give what you can, and enjoy the show!!
