Up in the air - Aerial students showcase skills at FAC

Posted

A heavy downpour on July 14 delayed — but did not derail — aerialists from taking to the air in the garden at Golden’s Foothills Arts Center.

The aerial show, which consisted of students that take classes sponsored by the the Apex School of Movement in southwest Denver.

During the show, the performers performed used a hoop, a rope and silks to suspend themselves above the garden and perform routines that were as daring as they were artistic.

In one routine, one experienced aerialist used her moves and the accompanying music to channel the complexities of Cersei from Game of Thrones. In another, a performer was joined on the silks by her grandson, who at one point balanced on her own knees.

Needless to say, the event provided an exciting end to Golden’s annual Arts Week.
