FREEDOM2FLY and their faculty aim to maintain an 'affordable' and 'available' aerial environment for professional dancers worldwide.
We know the importance of up-skilling and being more than a 'triple threat' in todays ever changing performing arts industry. We also appreciate the uncertain diary of a contracting performer and therefore are pleased to offer a market first 'Drop in' weekly aerial class that can work around you and your busy (and often changeable) schedule.
Our goal is to help you add some incredibly impressive specialised skills to your CV.
We value : Hard work, dedication, motivation, pushing past your limits. We strive to keep a friendly, supportive atmosphere that both nutures and inspires a sense of community and comradery among talented performers alike. Most importantly, above all, we value our safety and yours.
With all of this in mind, Aerial arts are a skill set in their own right and we offer classes for people wanting to - 'just try it out for fun/fitness' right through to - the more 'serious performers wanting to pursue a serious, exhilarating career' by helping to build and prepare performance ready pieces.
Like anything, this art takes a lot of time and effort and we will do our best to guide you however, whenever and wherever you may be on your 'aerial journey'.
IMPORTANT INFO FOR DANCERS WANTING TO BE DANCER/AERIALISTS Fundamentally it is important to understand that this is also a dangerous career if not respected fully. The right steps to building up your personal repertoire need to be taken to ensure you are constantly safe. This is not said to scare you at all. We are realistic and we have a lot of respect for this specialised art form. It is important that you understand that a year of once a week training alone will not make you 'performance ready'. If you are really interested in making a career out of aerials -A LOT of time, effort, sweat, bruises, burns, upper body strength(not to mention core, legs and back strength-yep the whole body!) and constant awareness of your body and 'rigging' is key to a long and prosperous, enjoyable career and with this in mind we are prepared to help your reach your goal if you are willing to put everything into it and accept the challenge.
We aren't saying it's going to be easy but we will say... "it'll be worth it"!
