The mission of Frequent Flyers is to create and promote the magic of aerial dance through performance and education.
Our vision is to help people to see the world, and themselves, from a new perspective, by experiencing the upside-down realm of aerial dance. We believe that this expanded consciousness helps people to maximize their creative potential.
Frequent Flyers Aerial Dance was founded in 1988 by artistic director Nancy Smith, and incorporated as a 501c(3) non-profit in 1990. Frequent Flyers has been teaching and performing aerial dance for over 24 years, and has a robust and growing community outreach program. Our performers venture indoors and out, blending aerial work seamlessly with dance. Frequent Flyers Education programs encompass aerial classes for the community, the Professional Training program, the international Aerial Dance Festival, the all-ages Apprentice Company, camps, workshops, private lessons and team-building events. Outreach programs include Kids Who Fly, TICA (Teens Inspiring Community Arts), Aerial Sci-Arts, community sampler classes, demonstration/discussion workshops, and more. Education and outreach are based at Frequent Flyers aerial school and studio, which offers classes for everyone aged 6 and up. FFP is one of fewer than 30 professional aerial dance companies in the US. The company produces the first (and still the largest) Aerial Dance Festival in the world, which is now in its 14th year. We have taught more than 10,100 people from all walks of life the joy of flying.
