Join us for this informal round-table discussion that explores longevity in the art form of aerial dance and contributions from the “elders.” How do we stay healthy? What is the value of studying with an elder? What is the 2-way exchange between new practitioners and experienced teachers?
July 29-August 6, 2018 proclaimed “Aerial Dance Week” by Boulder’s Mayor, Suzanne Jones, in honor of ADF’s 20th anniversary!
Come celebrate the 20th anniversary of bringing aerialists from around the globe to beautiful Boulder, Colorado. Skill building, idea sharing, inspiring, mind blowing gathering.
The faculty / artists have tremendous depth of knowledge in their craft.
Join the movement. Find your tribe.
The Aerial Dance Festival (ADF) is an opportunity for people from all walks of life to experience the joy of dancing in the air, for beginners through advanced aerial dancers. This 2-week immersion provides classes, lectures/demonstrations, informal discussions, networking, and performances.
“At ADF passionate people from around the world come to share and learn at the highest levels of our craft. As a teacher I’ve never had a better experience and as a student I treasured every class. Put it on your calendar, you’ll never take it off.” – Teo Spencer
