Asheville, NC ~ Aerial Space is excited to announce their Winter Student Showcase and One Year Anniversary Party on Saturday, January 8, 2011. Aerial Space extends a warm invitation to everyone in the community to come and see some amazing aerial circus arts throughout the day and enjoy the anniversary celebration in the evening… please spread the word!


Aerial Space
is a studio dedicated to the promotion and education of aerial movement and art ~ Trapeze, Lyra, Silks, Aerial Dance, Aerial Yoga and … just good clean fun up in the air. Their goal is to contribute to the Asheville community by offering both adults and children an outlet for play, self-expression and exercise. They offer a variety of classes for all ages and skill levels from Aerial Kids starting at age 6 to Aerial Yoga. Aerial Space thinks everyone should be able to run away and join the circus, if only for an hour. 

The Winter Student Showcase will be from 1-5pm and features techniques that the students have learned in classes at the Aerial Space over the past year. It’s their chance to show off their talents to their friends, family, and others in the community to see what they have been doing in these crazy aerial classes. Some will be short demos, others will be more polished and choreographed to music. Some of the students performing are Craig Lewis, Waverly Jones, 6 year old Eli on Silks and Sling, Alex Berkow on Silks, Jessica Hill on Silks, Hali and Bryn on Sling, Rowan and Jessica on Sling, Jennifer Cribbs on Trapeze, Hazel on Silks, and lots more will be announced.There will be a raffle including Patagonia luggage, local gift cards and lots more at 5pm; which also marks the beginning of the Anniversary Celebration which will go until 7pm!  Drinks and snacks will provided by local businesses.
