Ever wished for the ability to fly? One of the closest things to flying without a metal cage obstructing the freedom feeling is a form of dancing and acrobatics called Aerial Dance.
Dancers tie themselves up in silky cloth dangling at daring heights of 15 feet or more off the gymnasium floor while creating striking forms with the fabric. Climbing much higher than the basketball hoops, they set into different positions that are sometimes a little daunting and risky.
Though it appears graceful and smooth, aerial dance is not as simple as floating through the air on silks. It takes a great amount of core and arm strength and the correct technique to make it look as effortless as many of Snow College’s students make it appear, thanks to Snow College’s talented and experienced dance teachers. It is difficult and challenging at times; however, very rewarding and worth the sore muscles afterward.
If dancing and thrills spark your interest, sign up for Aerial Dance next semester at Snow College! “You don’t have to have experience in dance, or even be in shape at first; though by the end of the course you will be! It’s a lot of fun, and a great way to get in shape”. –Ashton Glass
