A few of my students are performing in our upcoming student showcase (TGR Fitness presents Elements) and some are competing in the AAFA Amateur Aerial Competition this summer and I have been getting a lot of questions about apparel/costuming from those performing aerial, so I thought I would share my tips with the them here.
Make sure you have adequate coverage based on your performance. Don’t have a bare midriff if you are doing a straddle back. It will not only be pretty unflattering in pictures, but it will also be pretty uncomfortable.
Don’t have bare armpits if you will be sliding upside down on the fabric using the friction from said armpits.
Ask me how I know this...
This weekend was the premier of the Misfit Cabaret. A production that I am co-producing with local burlesque performers, Leo LaFlash and Maddie Moiselle. It was a HUGE success! We had a large variety of artists, from aerialists, burlesque boylesque, belly dancing, musical theater, comedy, hooping, and more!
One of the goals we had when working on this was to create more performance opportunities for local artists and to give the audience a large variety of entertainment and we were successful at both! You can find more information on past and future events on our facebook page or website.
