Gabi Rojas performed on Aerial Hoop at the Fantastic Hosts’ Forbidden Planet Halloween party. Her show is posted on the AFA video page.
In preparation for the second Aerial Acrobatic Arts Festival, Lynn visited many of the aerialists who came to the Festival from Northern California. She was happy to fly trapezeÂ at the San Francisco Circus School, Trapeze
Arts, and with TrapezePro. Her trip included a visit to AirAligned in Nevada City and classes at Kinetic Arts and Athletic Playground in Oakland.
Our first student show at the Oriental Theater was super! Congratulations to the students and teachers who performed and special thanks to Brett Rayer for being our DJ! In July we took a new style of portable rigging to the
Crestone Emerging Arts Festival where Lauraleigh and Lynn performed.Â Emily and Liz performed on this new rig in Fort Collins at the Campus Crusade for Christ.
For the second year, we took our portable rig to the Colorado Regional Burning Man event: Apogaea. Thanks to the art grant we received and all the hard work of everyone in the High Flying Society, otherwise known as the aerial camp, our camp was a high flying success! This year we offered a show featuring aerial hoop, aerial silks, duo silks, contact juggling, swing
dancing, and bungee trapeze. We also offered workshops and generally had a great time!
The First Aerial Acrobatic Arts Festival was a tremendous success! The Festival featured 14 aerial acts in Aerial silks, Aerial hoop, Solo and Duo Trapeze, and Corde Lisse. Artists came from across America and Canada to perform, compete, and audiences were inspired by the level of talent! To see who won and watch the montage of the Festival highlights visit:
