Aerial Dance

I am excited to announce that North End Studio B, 294 N Winooski Ave, Burlington VT is home to World Tree Aerial Dance!  The studio is warm and inviting with a lovely, smooth floor and our new aerial rigs.  My aerial dance teaching style is very unique, drawing heavily on contemporary dance, improvisation, and somatic practices.  Fly, hang, spin, climb, and explore three-dimensional patterns in the body and space.  This practice builds strength, creativity, and confidence in a safe and supportive environment!  Weekly classes, Monthly Workshops, and Private Lessons are all offered to help aerial dance fit into your schedule.  Birthday parties and private group events are available upon request!
