Youth Taking Flight

Blue Lapis Light collaborates with teens from local social service organizations to create original dance performances.

These performances are the culmination of twice-weekly semester long classes. Performers explore their lives through words, music, movement and aerial dance.

Our semester-long classes introduce aerial dance techniques, provide insight into the imperative of safety, and demonstrate the benefits of building strength and body awareness. Students experience both the joy of flight and its challenges. Youth Taking Flight targets teenagers: instilling confidence and self-esteem through movement.
