Scientists wondered for years why hummingbirds could hover midair while humans were restricted to the ground, finally agreeing that it's not fair and hummingbirds must be destroyed. Dance in the air like the now-extinct hummingbird with today's Groupon: for $24, you get one drop-in aerial fitness session (a $24 value) including a one-time registration fee (a $25 value) at Aerial Dance Over Denver on East Hampden Avenue (a $49 total value).
One of the state's only full-time aerial training centers, Aerial Dance Over Denver offers aspiring acrobats the chance to get an elevated workout with expert off-the-ground guidance. The aerial fitness class promises exercises tailored to each participant's ability, building strength and bendability by boosting students to two or more different aerial apparatuses, such as the hoop or trapeze. As the class unfolds, air dancers can test their arms, legs, and cores, confidently grasping handholds like a strong-armed bonobo right at home in a jungle gym.
With more than 3,000 square feet, seven total aerial stations, and 35 total rigging points, Aerial Dance Over Denver presents circus enthusiasts with many chances to imitate Peter Pan's inimitable flying moves. Unlike cellular-tower climbing, aerial exercise offers a safe high, supervised by well-trained instructors over a specially designed padded floor.
Aerial Dance Over Denver
Gayle Lynne first took to the sky when she was 53, and was instantly hooked. Her dancing and ice-skating experience hadn’t prepared her for the joys of careening through the air on silks and hoops, but she quickly picked up on the skills, and was inspired to create a studio in which adults and children of all ages could also explore the sky. So Aerial Dance Over Denver was born, hosting air-borne maneuvers with 35 rigging points and seven aerial stations.
Gayle handpicked a fleet of experienced instructors, each primed with a background in dance, to lead students through classes and camps that introduce them to silk fabrics, trapeze work, and contortions—in which patrons increase their flexibility and learn to cram into small spaces, such as an unsuspecting family member's lunch box. Dangling from their material of choice, students perform a routine that builds strength and flexibility, scaled to suit beginners with slow and low maneuvers or veteran airborne artists with high-flying choreography.
