Blue Lapis Light, Austin’s site-specific aerial dance company is known for creating transcendent works of beauty and flying off buildings for the last 10 years. Company members teach on-going classes in aerial silks, harness, conditioning, and ballet. Their vision is to cultivate the exploration of dance technique and to share the joy of expressive movement in the air and on the ground. Blue Lapis Light’s custom 3040 square foot aerial studio space, provides two studios and a tranquil environment in which to grow and learn.
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.
Annually the studio presents the Blue Lapis Light Student Showcase, including over 14 dance pieces created for and by students. This year the student showcase, Within & Beyond is January 7 & 8, 8pm at the Boyd Vance Theater at the Carver Museum. For more information or tickets go to http://bluelapislight.org/performances/
