“Am I strong enough?”

“What if I’m
scared of heights?”

“Is it expensive?”

“How do I get started?”

All your questions
answered in the

Beginner’s Guide!

At Bumbershoot Aerial Arts, we put the "play" back into life. With quality instruction and a nurturing environment, we empower you to get creative and have fun! When you come to class, we give you a trapeze and teach you that your options are limitless. Through climbing and swinging and dancing in the air, we expand perspectives and inspire new confidence.

We love altering people’s self image by showing them what they are capable of. As you climb to the top of a 30 foot rope, your every day challenges are put back in perspective. Bumbershoot Aerial Arts enriches peoples' lives by helping them find their inner monkey.

Creative Movement: Generating new ways to move the body with Claire Hilleren

To an aerialist, movement in the air makes sense. Our muscles recognize the movement patterns we have trained and automatically move us through sequences that feel comfortable.  How do we break out of the comfort zone? How do aerialists move, dare I say it, on the GROUND?! That is where I come in. I have an extensive background in dance, and am currently dancing with MADco, the residential dance company of the Touhill Performing Arts Center.  I would like to share with you some of the tools that I have learned.

 

In this class I want to initiate our aerialist muscles into the “Floor Club.”  Using techniques that teach us how to move efficiently and effortlessly through our center, we will work our way from floor, to standing, and meld the two.  The goal in this class is to start teaching our muscles new ways to move and become comfortable in them. We will learn how to break through the boundaries we have unconsciously set and explore beyond the comfort zone in a friendly, judgement-free arena. What happens in floor club, stays in floor club!

Creative Movement: Choreographic Process with Claire Hilleren

Language is the ability to acquire and use complex systems of communication. In this class we will focus on creating language with our bodies. How do I show the audience what I am feeling? How do I do this without pantomiming the feeling? How do I abstract everyday gestures to make them more interesting or less recognizable? These are just a few of the questions we will address as I guide you on your journey of discovery.  Once we each find our unique language, I will facilitate the creation of a sentence. From there, we will discuss and explore how one sentence can turn into an entire short story--in other words, a new aerial performance piece!  (Showcase participation not required.)
