Pole and Aerial Small Group Fitness Studio

Intermediate Aerial Hoop (Lyra)


This class is taught by:

Lindsay Bellaire

Manager of Aerial Programs

Lindsay is the Artistic Director of Theatre Arcturus where she co-created, choreographed and performed in WEIRD (Best of Fest 2015 Ottawa Fringe, Cutting-Edge Award 2016 Toronto Fringe), Rough Magic, and the more family-friendly Lumberjack Show. Before Arcturus, she directed STALLED in the 2013 Toronto Fringe Festival. After graduating from the University of Windsor’s BFA in Acting program, she trained in aerial arts at the Toronto School of Circus Arts, and other studios in the GTA. As an aerialist she has performed her acts at festivals and events across Ontario, with a brief tour to China in 2015. She loves to bring her experience back to the studio as an instructor; after running a small studio in Muskoka under Arcturus for almost two years she is now joining the team at Brass Butterflies in Waterloo, where she’ll be leading the aerial program.

For those who have mastered the basics, this class focuses on more advanced tricks requiring a greater level of strength and technique, as well as stylization and the basics of performance on hoop.

Prerequisites: Completion of the Beginner Aerial Hoop program at Brass Butterflies or equivalent from another studio, ability to do a pullover, at least one unassisted chin-up, tuck-through and reverse (also known as skin-the-cat). If you're unsure if you are ready for this class, please contact Brass Butterflies to determine your eligibility.
