We've been working with our colleagues in the sector to offer peer-learning opportunities for emerging and established aerialists to keep you inspired, motivated and moving when the usual opportunities are not possible. We hope you'll find is something of use to you.
We'll be around on social media for another couple weeks yet, but we wont be back in your inboxes until the New Year when we have some concrete plans to announce... fingers (and everything possible) crossed.
Stay safe until then.
Those of you who have been here for a while know that we have a commitment to inclusive aerial practice and towards making the aerial arts accessible to everyone. We fully recognise that we’ve still got some way to go.
In 2021 the majority of our workshops, courses and online events will be captioned and BSL interpreted and venues will be wheelchair accessible. We’re continually learning how to make more access accommodations and invite all our participants to let us know their access needs and we will do our best to meet them.
Over the coming weeks we’ll be spotlighting D/deaf and disabled aerial artists as well as companies and training spaces that have an inclusive practice on our socials.
If there’s an artist, company or space we should know about, please do tell us.
Inspired by Understory, a collection of insights from a diverse group of artists in the dance world, Lindsey is curating a series of articles, musings and videos from aerialists at all stages of their careers on navigating these new times.
These shared insights will delve into the breadth of practice out there and the diverse pathways we’ve each taken into the aerial arts.
Contributions will be released bi-weekly in the New Year to our website and IGTV, so keep your eyes peeled on our socials.
Portrait & Landscape
We are teaming up with our vertically inclined pals Wanda Moretti and Kate Lawrence to create a series of online 'gifts' for those of you with a passion for harness work. Online bi/monthly meetings with some of the worlds leading vertical dance artists will stimulate, provoke, keep us connected and responsive to our wonderful ever-evolving art-form. Meetings will be free but ticketed and will start in the New Year. Line-up and release dates coming imminently.
San Fransisco Aerial Arts Festival Film Project

In place of the cancelled SFAAF 2020, Zaccho Dance Theatre bought together 16 international aerial artists (including our Lindsey) to tell a collective narrative during this time of uncertainty and social chaos. Taking place on mountain tops, old forts, bridges, and in gardens, this work reveals an intimate perspective of the world we are navigating. Video by Joanna Haigood and Mary Ellen Strom. Take a peek at the SFAAF Film Project trailer above and tune into the premiere on their website on Saturday 19 December.
Lindsey will also be taking part in a live Q&A panel alongside other contributing aerial artists 7pm (UK time / 11am Pacific time) Saturday 19 December.
