Swing State Aerial is making some big changes this year! In addition to bringing on two new teachers and Stephanie starting to teach as well, saying a fond goodbye to Karen as she focuses on other elements of circus work (aerialists with prior training can still take cloud swing lessons from her!), we are also going to be moving around a lot in the coming year.
As many of our students and followers are aware, Madison Circus Space, our class location and home base, is a part of the big redevelopment project on the 2100 Winnebago Block. MCS is rebuilding in a slightly different location, along with CoHo Madison's cooperative housing and arts space. We are so excited for a bigger, custom-built MCS!! If you are excited too, please help out the MCS Capital Campaign with a donation or pledge (there's a big matching campaign on as well - right now you double your dollars!)
In the meantime, as the current buildings come down over the summer, we will be relocating in a number of ways. Firstly, MCS will have a temporary space (still to be finalized, but likely a location not far away just off Milwaukee Street), Swing State is looking for other spaces that can host us, and we are planning on a purchase of a portable aerial rig for outdoor classes and practice time.
Mackenzie is also attending an aerial retreat with Paper Doll Militia in May, which will put silks classes on hold for a few weeks!
Swing State Aerial will have very limited room for beginning or new students until late May or June this year, but look for new sessions from us this summer when we've gotten settled in new places and new routines! In the meantime, please contact us if you'd like to be on a waitlist for a first chance at spots in classes that open up this summer.
Happy flying, and have an excellent spring!
