Aeriosa is an artist-driven non-profit dance company founded by choreographer Julia Taffe in 2005. Director. Aeriosa produces dance and movement-based performances for the public, along with delivering workshops, educational dance and other performing arts activities. Julia and her team combine art, environment, and adventure, making dances on buildings and mountains, in the tree canopy, and on stage, finding new movement perspectives in the realm of suspension. Vertical Dance is an emerging and growing art form using rope and harness rigging systems to suspend dancing bodies in air and stage performances in high-angle terrain. Aeriosa creates dance in non-traditional surroundings, proposing unusual performance scenarios to artists and audiences alike. We bring free and low-cost performances and educational workshops for underserved groups in communities, believing that open access to dance and other arts programming strengthens our social fabric thus enriching all our lives.
