The arts set us apart. They are the element that makes us human and encompasses mind, body, and spirit connections. We live in a world that allows us, if we choose, to experience, express ourselves, and participate in the arts in a plethora of ways. As unique individuals, we find that certain art forms speak to each of us differently. One of the most wonderful things about the arts, is that we are able to experience and support them in such a wide variety of ways.
I have the opportunity to not only experience and participate, but also to support and teach my love for the visual arts as a teacher in a school. This experience allows me to both encourage and support students in their artistic journey, as well as experience their growth in self-expression, creativity, artistic process, and creative problem solving. I am also given the opportunity to learn from my students about other art forms they are interested in, including drama, spoken word, poetry, music in many forms, dance, and the list goes on. Not only do I get to have an art rich experience when I am at school with my students, but I get to have similar experiences as an instructor at Aerial Dance.
You may not realize this, but when you are at Aerial Dance you are supporting and being encompassed by, the arts. Not only are dance and aerial art forms, the elements that are encompassed in every aspect of Aerial Dance and the backgrounds and training bringing the arts to you in a variety of ways, is amazing. You are literally walking in to a place flooded with arts awesomeness. To list just a small portion of the arts based backgrounds and trainings of your instructors, outside of the aerial arts and fitness; you will find a classically trained musician, choreography expertise, editing gurus, a dance degree, dance coaches, theater performance and directing experience , seamstresses, visual art and music educators, make-up magicians, and the list goes on. Because of this, Aerial dance is able to bring you a diverse and all encompassing experience that is completely unique and special. We love sharing these things with our students, and know that we are equally lucky to have the diversely amaxing and talented students of aerial dance who have and share their beautiful artistic gifts as well. We are grateful for the opportunities we have to share and support the arts through aerial dance and our fabulous sisterhood of women. .
