Dancing on the Stawamus Chief in Squamish was a huge highlight for the summer. Aeriosa and an amazing team of riggers, photographers and even a computerized flying drone made it’s way 600 feet up to capture some footage of us dancing on the famous Grand Wall.
If you are curious about this project you can read more about it in these articles: http://aeriosa.wordpress.com/2013/08/09/aeriosa-on-the-stawamus-chief/
After a few days of rest, Aeriosa headed over to Vancouver Island to create a performance for the opening ceremony of the IFSC World Youth Championships, held at Boulders Climbing Gym in Saanich. You can view the 6 minute performance, 46 minutes into this clip:
Next, we were off to Tofino. Ocean, beach, and forest at its very best.
Aeriosa spent 9 days rehearsing in preparation for a performance both on the ground and in the trees at the Botanical Garden for their annual Lantern Festival. It was wonderful to participate in this magical event, and was our first time dancing in the trees and collaborating with the lovely and talented Kim Tuson. Needless to say, I loved being up in the canopy, getting sprinkled in moss, breathing in the freshest air, and observing the creatures that live in the unique aerial habitat.
It has been a very exciting summer, and now that I’m home, I wanted to share my teaching schedule for the fall. I’ve got some new classes and workshops coming up, and am still available for private sessions if you prefer to work one-on-one.
