Since 2005, UpSwing Aerial Dance began as an aerial dance program specializing in low flying trapeze, sling, and rope & harness work. During these six years, we offered classes, workshops, and performance opportunities for Kids, Girls, Teens and Adults. In 2011, we introduced the professional company-UpSwing Aerial Dance Company.

We have 3 teaching aerialists on faculty, and 4 adjunct faculty committed to the merging of dance and aerial arts. UpSwing Aerial Dance offers a rare blend of creativity, aerial technique, improvisation, time and space to motivate the artist within you. ALL classes, workshops and performances held at Studio 12 are under the direction of Cherie Carson and UpSwing Aerial Dance. For more information, our website is at:
