Zuzi!’s instructors draw on diverse backgrounds to engage participants in high-flying feats. Founded in 1998, the nonprofit arts organization strives to involve the community in modern dance through a seasonal schedule of classes, performances, and mandatory conga lines. Students aged 16 and up build spatial awareness as they twirl through the air during beginning and intermediate aerial classes, which brush over formal aspects of technique while emphasizing improvisation and exploration. Zuzi! requires that students come to class with some aerial experience, whether from previous trapeze courses or past lives as birds.
Trapezes, lyras, and slings dangle above the stage and classrooms at Zuzi!, a nonprofit organization with an affinity for the expressiveness of modern dance and the gracefulness of aerial maneuvers. The source of this passion rests within cofounder and artistic director Nanette Robinson—who is a certified Skinner Releasing Technique instructor—and radiates outward to talented teachers who lead dance classes ranging from aerial and ballet to funk. It also fills the studio’s troupe of performers who frequently pack Zuzi!’s 135-seat theater for seasonal performances, including an annual Winter Solstice Concert. Their mission also involves spreading the message of modern dance as far as possible, which is why they schedule an open aerial class during Friday happy hour and offer classes for kids as young as 4 years old.
