Aerial Horizon awarded two grants, featured on TV, Newspapers, Texas Public Radio, and more!

Our swiftly growing company is gaining prominent recognition in San Antonio.  Aerial Horizon's founder, Julia Langenberg, accepted two grants from the Artist Foundation last month (http://blogs.sacurrent.com/art_slut/artist-foundation-awards-announced/), one for an Original Procution and the second is the Tobin Grand Prize for Artistic Excellence.  These grants will be used to create an interactive production in collaboration with local dance, theater, and video artists. We're also purchasing equipment for our new studio. Our new home will be San Antonio's only building dedicated to the aerial arts.  Many thanks to the Artist Foundation for making this possible (http://www.artistfound.org/awards/2013.cfm).

Last fall, we opened for ZZ Top at the Alamodome, performed for the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, Summit's Women's Conference, Any Baby Can, Moonrise Over Monte Vista, Jump-Start, Convergent Theater, Texas Ranger Museum, TEDx, filmed with MOTH Poetic Circus at the Majestic Theater, and performed for various corporate events in Houston and Dallas.  We taught workshops at Texas State University, Brownsville Dance Center, Bradley Middle School, and choreographed aerial acts with Chet Walker for Trinity University’s “Pippin.”

Aerial Horizon made the front page of the San Antonio Express-News (http://www.mysanantonio.com/entertainment/music-stage/article/Off-to-a-flying-start-5163228.php), we were featured several times in SA Scene Magazine and the San Antonio Current, and interviewed on TPR (http://tpr.org/post/artist-foundation-san-antonio-provides-sparks-local-artistic-fire).

Halo Workshops

Learn about our signature Invented Apparatus, the "Halo," on Saturday, Feb. 15th!

Our senior instructor, Elise Sipos, is one of only a few people in the world specializing in this newly invented aerial apparatus she calls a "Halo." Julia Langenberg is (to our knowledge) the only person who has explored and created an act for this apparatus on the ground. We're offering 2 workshops next Saturday for you to learn about this unique apparatus!

WHEN: Saturday, Feb. 15th

TIME:
Aerial Halo 10:30 am - 12 pm
(Regularly scheduled Open Gym for our current students will still happen on Sat. from 12-1)
Ground Halo 1-2 pm

COST:
Aerial Halo $40
Ground Halo $35

PREREQUISITES: 
Aerial Halo - Previous experience on trapeze, lyra, or fabric is beneficial, but not required.
Ground Halo - Comfortable inverting on the ground.

DESCRIPTIONStudents will look at what it means to create movement specific to an invented apparatus. We will work on a short sequence, focusing on transitions. Students will also be asked to take their known trapeze, lyra, and/or fabric vocabulary and transform it to fit the new space in the air and on the ground.

Stilting Workshops

Sunday, Feb.9 & 161-3pm
Thursday, Feb. 13 & 206-8pm

If you enjoyed Aerial Horizon's collaboration with the stilters of Carpetbag Brigade last fall at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, now is your chance to learn to stilt! 

Description:
This workshop includes warm-ups, training and exercises intended to bring awareness to the movement habits stilt require. At the beginner level we work with proper stilt alignment and gaits, and can move into choreography and transitions. We will also work on Release Technique and Contact Improvisation principles, which will help increase spatial awareness and responsiveness to weight and touch. The pace and the content of this work will be tailored to our participants.

Instructor: 
Helen Goodrum is at the forefront of the development of acrobaticstilt walking; a rare unique art form that few artists worldwide have mastered. With only a handful of professional companies exploring the possibilities of acrobatic stilts, Helen Goodrum is a leading artist in the field having contributed to its growth and continues to bring innovative development through her teachings, training, collaboration and performance.

Cost: 
$100 for all 4 classes, or $25/class
