Dancers will learn specific aerial skills as well as use improvisation and problem solving to learn additional ways to move on the apparatus. Aerial work requires athleticism but also allows the dancer to demonstrate dynamic shapes and a seamless flow of movement. The development of skills and artistry in aerial dance presents additional career opportunities for students post-graduation as numerous dance and entertainment companies are specifically looking for dancers with aerial training.
The aerial program offers classes from beginning to advanced levels and students
will have the opportunity to perform choreographed aerial routines during the annual
River Campus Summer Arts Festival as well as for informal class showings.
