I am looking for support in building a structure in my backyard that will allow me to not only train myself in circus arts but get back to coaching others as the only black female aerial coach in Minneapolis.
I will also be able to use the space to offer opportunities to the community to try aerial arts and even be able to host an apprenticeship program specifically geared towards engaging more BUIPOC in become aerial arts instructors.
Circus arts challenges you mentally, physically and helps build confidence. It encourages play and exploration and contributes greatly to individuals overall well being.
Its “out of the box-ness” also encourages natural community and skill sharing and peer to peer comradery.
