About the Event
Upside Aerial students and instructors will be performing for Downtown Burlington's St. Paddy's Day Bash Friday, March 15th, from 5 to 9pm! This free festival features live music & entertainers, food trucks, a beer garden, and lots of fun, family-friendly activities.
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 and apparatuses from the studio (although you are welcome to bring your own if you prefer). This event is open to all levels of students who attend our classes regularly: while you don't have to have a fully-choreographed routine, be prepared with at least one sequence you are comfortable with. 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!
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. Upside silks instructor, Erika Minor, will be the Event Lead, so if you have any questions, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
