The D.A.I.R project is an old church in Grant Park that’s been converted into an aerial dance studio. Adults and Kids can learn to use different types of trapeze and advance to climbing silk fabrics. Andrea Fors explained the progression. “We start underneath the trapeze hanging, using the hands to grip and just getting comfortable that way and then they’ll eventually get that nerve and want to do more and more.”
“I’ve found in my experience that people progress very quickly”, Nicole Merman told us. “And it’s just playful. People forget that they are getting a physical workout because its fun, its play. I’ve seen some amazing transformations in people’s bodies in very short amounts of time from doing this.”
Andrea explains the appeal. “I like it because it’s another world. I’m so focused on what I’m doing that I don’t even know that there’s anything outside of that little world. It’s a way to escape and just be in a different place for a little bit.”
