Tahoe Flow Arts Youth Program provides unparalleled performance art training in aerial fabric, dance and yoga, with an emphasis on health and wellness. We have created a sacred space that turns students and teachers into one big family. Performance training is tough and rigorous, but participants are evoked into self-confidence through these three benefits of training with us:
Living in the heart of a mountain town we acknowledge the importance of a tribe. In our tribe, everyone is expected to look out for one another and do their part. No one gets left behind, or tangled up in the fabrics. Knowing our students’ capability, we encourage them to push past their fear and believe in their abilities. Our teaching creates holistic and fun learning and makes well rounded individuals that care for themselves and others.
We are guided by the internal journey of self and its many phases. Our intent is to hold space for the younger generation to openly honor themselves and feel free through self-expression. As performers we are free to discover our personal depths and express them confidently.
Future aerialists are encouraged to grow into their individuality. Firstly, they need discipline in tricks and technique, but they also need to divert what they learn into their own personality. Developing an upside down perspective stimulates imagination and play. Both of which are important to incorporate into our everyday lives for happiness, health, and success.
In each session we will be focusing on specific concentrations to guide your child through their journey in aerial fabric. All students must be able to complete each of our required concentrations to be able to attend our youth aerial fabric level 1 class.
