Grantee: Spokane Aerial Performance Arts LLC

Project Title: Youth Modern Circus Spectacular!
Year awarded: 2021, Round 2

The Youth Modern Circus Spectacular! will be organized by Spokane Aerial Performance Arts LLC, a 10-year-old circus and aerial arts education and performance company that has been performing for the Spokane Community since December of 2011. Spokane Aerial currently has 58 students taking aerial silks classes, between the ages of 6 to 18. The group also hosts an adult aerial silks program at the same location.

With SAGA support, the circus will provide a performance opportunity for individuals and groups by student aerialists as young as 6 years old. All safety measures will be taken regarding mats, rigging and COVID-19. Aerial performances combine art and sport within the context of theater, telling a story through movement and expression.
