Humankind has long sought to foil gravity by traveling in airplanes, sightseeing in balloons, and sleeping in hovercrafts. Defy physics with today’s Groupon to Lifted Arts. Choose between the following options:
- For $29, you get a two-hour introduction-to-aerial-acrobatics workshop (a $70 value).
- For $39, you get five drop-in aerial dance classes (a $100 value).
The accomplished aerial dancers at Lifted Arts teach students of all skill levels to soar, twist, and twirl through the air with cunning manipulations of bright ribbons. Burgeoning acrobats learn the fundamentals of aerial elegance in an intro workshop, which acquaints students with the strong fabrics that dancers use to lift, spin, and bend themselves in dazzling routines. Ample safety mats and firemen circulating with trampolines ensure safe midair tumbling, and beginners leave with the giddy sense of having outwitted gravity. Alternatively, a schedule of one-hour drop-in classes unfurls the complexities of midair dance. Sessions combine physical conditioning, which strengthens and stretches limbs and cores, and practice with dance techniques and skywriting the alphabet.
