Vertical Dance at the University of Washington consists of two classes of 6 and 8 students. We are working in one of the bright beautiful studios which has several rigging points, 4 of which we are using. The class is focusing on Low Fly technique, where dancers have the ability to swing and suspend, but also to ground down and use the floor. Class is structured in a Laboratory style where each student works at their own pace and creates dances, through experimentation and improvisation, that are meaningful to them.

Under the artistic direction of Jenefer Davies, Washington and Lee University is one of the first colleges in the country to offer aerial dance as an academic discipline. A leader in avant-garde dance techniques, Professor Davies also teaches aerial silks and bungee. In breathtaking performances under the clouds, student aerial dancers explore movement 40-feet above the ground from the rooftops of campus buildings as the culmination of their semester long and spring term study. Aerial students have also performed at the Ailey Citigroup Theatre in New York City, at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington DC, and at festivals. Davies also offers a spring term abroad class where students travel to Europe to study aerial dance with professional companies. Her book Aerial Dance: A Guide to Dance with Rope and Harness was published by Routledge Press in 2018
