Gravity & Levity


Welcome to June! It's ALL about EADF this month 😍 and we have *lots* of exciting things to update you on! 💃

Most importantly - it's the last month for our Early Bird offer, so get your tickets before prices rise on 1st July!

(Plus you'll be able to secure your preferred classes when you book - over 30 classes a day to choose from! 🥳)

Read on to find out more about our extra class of Straps (first class sold out!), our Feel Good Saturday offerings, our Have A Go community sessions, accommodation at EADF, and an incredible opportunity to train with Erin Ball...

We can't wait to see you there!

EADF: 5th -16th August 2024

✨ Extra Straps Class - Week 1 

We've added an extra class of Straps at Improver Up level in Week 1 of EADF, as Week 2 at that level sold out long ago!

Join Pepe (aka Jose) to experience the simplicity of the straps but the complexity of the technique - whilst having lots of fun!

Straps - Improvers & Up - 2.30-4pm, Week 1

Full details of Straps classes here

✨ Feel Good Saturday - 10th August

Our Feel Good Saturday offerings take a deeper dive into complimentary body work and set you up perfectly for your day off at the beach, helping you wind down after Week 1 or prep for the week ahead.

Join us for 1, 2 or all 3 sessions - your body will thank you for it! 🙏

✨ Teacher Training with Erin Ball


BIG news! We're really excited to have Erin Ball with us leading 'Disability and Accessibility in Circus Arts' teacher training sessions. This in an incredible opportunity to train with Erin!

These sessions will run Mon - Fri (excl. Weds) from 4.15-7pm with a short break in the middle, and continue with an optional class on Sat 10th from 10.30-2.30, as Erin puts into practice the learning from the week.

Erin will be welcoming local D/deaf, disabled, neurodivergent and chronically ill artists and community.

✨ Accommodation at EADF


EADF is booking up and we've had a few of you ask about accommodation. Great thinking - now is the time to find somewhere to stay!

👉 We've created an 'Accommodation at EADF' thread on our European Aerial Dance Festival Facebook page, so you can connect with other lovely people, find housemates and share lifts. 🏠

📍 Here's the page and the post is pinned at the top.

✨ Arts Council Funding

Thanks to Arts Council funding, we're thrilled to have been able to offer 9 subsidised places for artists identifying as underrepresented in the aerial sector and 4 free places to D/deaf and disabled artists in week 1 of the EADF. These applications are now closed.
