About the Event
Upside Aerial students and instructors will be performing for Downtown Burlington's St. Paddy's Day Bash Friday, March 17th, from 5 to 8pm! This festival features live music & entertainers, food trucks, and a beer garden. Family-friendly fun including face painting, balloon twisting and more will be from 5 to 8pm. The beer garden will be open till 9pm.
FOR UPSIDE AERIAL STUDENTS & PERFORMERS:
We love providing opportunities for our students to perform in front of live audiences and to connect with each other outside the studio! We will have our free-standing aerial rig set up near Burlington Beer Works in downtown Burlington. We'll provide St. Paddy's Day-themed music, so come prepared with a sequence you feel comfortable with on the apparatus(es) you train on regularly at Upside. Students and instructors will take turns performing their sequences for festival-goers to enjoy. If you don't want to perform, we'd love it if you still came to hang out with us: you can help us with setup or breakdown and cheer on your fellow Upsiders!
If you are performing, you can either bring your own aerial fabric/apparatus or use the studio-provided equipment. Please wear green or your Upside Aerial apparel with green accents or accessories! Feel free to glam it up...festival-goers love color and costumes: we recommend green face glitter and green gemstones (applied with lash glue or spirit gum). Just remember to avoid sharp, poky accessories that may get caught on your aerial apparatus.
