(image taken whilst on a proper day off last Sunday). The last two weeks have been full of ups and downs. 
UPS
Arts Council show their support of the studio by awarding us an ARTS GRANT for our projects developing the circus arts sector.

DOWNS
There is now no more public liability available for circus arts education. We have contacted over 30 brokers across Ireland, the UK, France, Germany and other countries. There is nothing available.

This is totally undermining the proposed works for 2020, which can’t run without public liability. If this doesn’t change soon, we are all going to be forced to close down. 
Contact your local TD asap and ask them what they’re doing about it please. Don’t be fobbed off by them blaming the insurance sector. Unless the government pushes reform through quickly, so much of what we love about our country and our culture will be gone.

2 hour workshop
Wednesday, 11th September @ 6pm
Price: €60
Www.takingflight.ie/bookings

In this workshop you will learn delightful brainteasing choreography full of twists, turns and tangles in the ropes. We will focus on smoothing out technique and finding fluidity in the transitions. 
Prerequisite: Students must be able to invert easily in the ropes, have a single knee hang and hold a 5 second back balance. 
Tutor:  Kalina Suter
A seabird and wolf child at heart, Kalina draws upon her instinctive nature in her creative style and movement. A dancer/equestrian stunt rider turned aerialist she graduated from the New England Center for Circus Arts, USA, with a specialty in Dance Trapeze. 
After many years of roaming the globe in her creative pursuits Kalina has based herself in Edinburgh , where her mission is to convert people to the magical and mysterious ways of dance trapeze one student at a time.

#phibsboro #phibsborough #dancetrapeze #workshop #dublinfitfam #circusarts 10 YEARS AGO!
I started my journey into aerial and circus arts 10 years ago, by attending the first IADF in Letterkenny. There were less than 30 of us! It was amazing to reconnect with the festival as a student, giving myself some much-needed me time. Special thanks to @gravitylevity for sharing her rep on the wall: you fill my soul!  #somethingforthesoul #verticaldance #iadf2019 #aerialrocks

What our students think

After recently attending an aerial bootcamp at Taking Flight, I found the space perfect for aerial. The atmosphere was friendly and fun, the training was fantastic, catering to all levels.
