On 19th December 2015, a dance show dedicated to aerial dance performances will be organized by the school Aerial Dance Geneva and will take place in “Uptown Geneva”.
Performances of Pole Dance but also Aerial Hoop and Aerial Silk, which are the heart of our activities as a dance school, will be presented. The Show is planned to last for more than 2 hours with thirty dancers from our school (students and instructors) but also professionals coming from abroad especially for the show. Our two main guests will be Anastasia Skukthorova and Alex Shchukin. Every levels of dance will be presented because we want to give the opportunity to our students to shine on stage and show this art that is not yet well known to a large public. This event will be a non profit event with the only goal to spend a good time watching our artists and present these disciplines to a public that might not know about it yet.
What is pole dancing ?
Pole Dancing can be viewed as a sport or kind of dance, it is certainly close to dance, gymnastics or circus, with a very artistic aspect. Unfortunately, Pole Dancing is often poorly known and a negative image often sticks. Pole dancing practice can bring the following benefits: muscle strengthening, gain in flexibility, grace development, control, creativity and artistic development, weight loss and body toning. It especially helps build self-confidence and brings along a feeling of freedom. The pole is used as a vertical apparatus on which to perform different dance moves and acrobatics. For us, Pole Dancing is a very physical activity which requires all the elements required from an athlete. We want it to be recognized as a sport and art entirely.
Who are we?
Aerial Dance Geneva is a dance school which opened in May 2013 in Carouge, Switzerland. We offer Pole Dancing classes, Aerial Hoop, Aerial Silk, Aerial Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Pilates and Flexibility classes. Our school is therefore mainly focused on aerial disciplines. Thanks to a fast growth, we moved last summer in a bigger studio, still in Carouge. We can now welcome our 200 students in a three floor loft and its three bright rooms. Managed by Marie-Caroline Caillat, former bank employee who decided to live her passion fully, the studio is not only a dance school but also a place where our students are happy to come, meet and help each other. We currently employ 12 part-time instructors who teach from 1 to 6 classes each week in addition to their own profession.
