Air Temple Arts: Intro to Circus
Air Temple Arts
Air Temple Arts is Connecticut’s premiere aerial dance and circus facility, founded in 2013 by Stacey Strange. Since its founding in a tiny warehouse space, Air Temple has expanded twice, and currently resides in Woodbridge.
Air Temple is known for their commitment and safety in classes for students of all ages and abilities, and for their creative shows. Their mission is to help students foster strength and self-esteem, and unlock the ability to use their physicality to interact creatively with the world.
The studio has been featured in regional press as well as on PBS’ national program START UP. Their shows, which have featured time travel, gender-bending Sherlock Holmes, and retold the myth of Orpheus in Eurydice’s words, have received acclaim and toured throughout New England. Most recently, they created a digital extravaganza for the re-opening of Hartford’s Bushnell Theater.
