We’re not only pioneering this incredible art form, we’re serving the community with our outreach programs. In addition to free or low-cost discussion-demonstrations for school kids, we have two classes specifically geared to youth in our community.
Kids Who Fly
Kids Who Fly builds healthy risk-taking behaviors, works constructively on self-esteem issues, and helps youth experience the unique joy of artistic expression through attending aerial classes designed specifically for youth-at-risk. Students benefit from increased strength and confidence; better body image; broader and more appropriate concepts of physical beauty; reduced stress and improved coping through creative expression; improvement in brain function for kids with certain learning disabilities; and the flat-out delight and freedom of flying. Since the program’s inception, we have served over 8,300 youth in our community.
