September brought workshops presented by Carlos Salazar who performed Straps in the 2014 Aerial Acrobatic Arts Festival. Every Sunday, Carlos presented new skills on straps to Aerial Fabric Acrobatics students and other students from other studios. Everyone made progress and had lots of fun.
Also in September, Rachel Gauthier was in town with the Cavalia Odysseo show. Rachel performed Innovation in the 2012 Aerial Acrobatic Arts Festival. She is a fantastically gifted artist who was performing as an aerialist on aerial hoop and aerial fabric in the Odysseo show and also is one of the trick riders. She generously took everyone back stage, including Lynn’s 85 year old mother and also dropped by the gym to work out with Aerial Fabric. It was great to see Rachel perform in Odysseo. The show combines visual elements of video, outstanding horsemanship, acrobatics, and beautiful music. It was being filmed when in Denver, and Aerial Fabric was able to see the show as guests of one of the film directors who also purchased aerial fabric from the company.
