June 2016

Since 2003, we have AFA Bayard & David Dardano'sPacking up the Gymenjoyed offering classes and open work-out sessions at the gym! Our program helped thousands of people learn aerial skills. We offered performing opportunities to our advanced students, produced student shows twice a year, and are proud of the aerial silks curriculum we developed, under the program direction of Tatanya Hamermesh. We are thankful to Larry Dardano who allowed us to use his gym as a great place to build a strong program. We offer our full DVD series on our Aerial Instructional page. Our curriculum was developed with the help of Tatanya Hamermesh, Lynn Coleman, Jamey Atchison, Liz Smith, Jennifer Wilcox, Jill Katzenberger, Julie Rattelmeuller, Eric Pung as well as all our Independent Contractor Instructors and Workshop leaders.

Bayard, David, and Lynn packed up the equipment and said goodbye to the gym program at the end of June. As we post our curriculum on our website we continue our strong tradition of offering instruction to the aerial community.
