AirAligned returns to The Center for the Arts

Special to The Union

AirAligned aerial dance group has taken their art to a new level for their annual showcase at The Center for the Arts. Lighting, sound, costumes, stage effects and amazing theatrical performances are featured in Masquerade – a music and dance performance designed to “Allow the fantasy of reality to take over.”

Performers have designed their own unique character choreography and costume to begin the fantasy. Walk through time with AirAligned, vocalist Craig Thomas, hula hoop artist Erin Shredder, liquid break-dancer Chris Foucht, poi and acrobatic artists and more.

AirAligned is a theatrical aerial dance group formed in 2004 by Artistic Director Tresa Honaker. Unlike traditional circus performers AirAligned members are formally trained dancers, acrobats and martial artists using trapeze, lyra, bungee, straps and aerial fabric. Productions are beautifully choreographed and athletically executed. The group has received additional training in the aerial arts from Ingrid Hoffman in Los Angeles, Trapeze Arts in Oakland and San Francisco Circus Center. They’ve been featured at the Sacramento Convention Center, Garbeau Dinner Theater, The Center for the Arts, The Miners Foundry, Chris Evans Productions along with benefit performances and festival productions.
