Frequent Flyers Productions Aerial Dance Professional Training Program

Why train with Frequent Flyers® Productions?

Trio aerial dancers

Train with the company that has been pioneering this art form for 30 years. Frequent Flyers® Aerial Dance training goes beyond aerial skill acquisition; the focus is on the process of transforming aerial skills into an artistic expression that integrates ground-based movement and aerials. All of the teachers, also accomplished aerial artists, have completed a rigorous teacher training program specifically geared to teaching aerial dance with safety, technique and creativity in mind. Couple the teachers’ training with their diverse backgrounds in a wide variety of disciplines (for example: Pilates, Yoga, massage, science, somatic practices, and nearly every type of dance imaginable), and you will leave Frequent Flyers® with a wealth of knowledge pertinent to a variety of aerial applications.

This program will help you to incorporate aerials into your movement repertoire and choreography, gain the necessary strength and body awareness required for work in the air, and prepare you for a career in the aerial arts field. Our program emphasizes gaining a breadth of knowledge in the aerial field but leaves room for specialization in order to meet individual students' goals. Frequent Flyers' school attracts people from diverse backgrounds, so you will not only have the opportunity to learn from Frequent Flyers’ teachers, but also from the individuals you will be training and performing with.
