Spring has sprung, and you can spring too- right into the air at Blue Lapis Light! Austin’s premier aerial dance company has a brand new schedule of classes open to dancers of all ages and skill, featuring everything from ballet to aerial silks.
Whether you’re looking to get that summer beach bod back (yes- aerial silks is a workout!), or simply want to try something new that your New Year’s Resolution (remember that?) didn’t exactly cover, now is the perfect time to make your mark on the dance company known for flying off buildings for the past decade.
Take it from us, or from Blue Lapis Student Angela-
“My experience with Blue Lapis Light over the years has been transformative. The ethereal beauty that the company is so well known in their performances is channeled into the technique that is taught to the student community. I’ve been taught to explore movement and creativity in ways I couldn’t have possibly imagined before walking into my first class 5 years ago. The progress I’ve made and breakthroughs I’ve had are beyond physical strength and technique, as learning any movement form takes you on a journey of the mind and spirit. The gentle yet challenging environment of the Blue Lapis studio is the perfect place for moving through and experiencing the vast spectrum of emotions and internal discoveries associated with an extremely physical art form. The studio community is unparalleled, I’ve met the most amazing and supportive people in my classes. I’ve found an exceptional home for my creativity to be nurtured and flourish.”
Classes are offered to students of all ages. Blue Lapis Light specializes in aerial silks, with classes for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students, group or private sessions. Also, Harness classes are available, allowing students to run on walls and dance suspended in the air.
Special workshops are offered in site-specific dance, movement awareness, and custom classes for big and small groups. Each summer the Children’s Aerial Creation Camp leads groups of children ages 8-12 in collaborative choreography, creating a unique performance for friends and family at the end of week.
And for those of you that would rather spectate than get in on the action yourselves, save the date for Blue Lapis Light’s summer spectacular, Radiance, on the Long Center ring beam! It’s literally a performance you’ll have to see to believe.
