Kinesiologist and aerialist Elizabeth Blanchard will be stopping by Sky Candy this March to share some knowledge with us. As a member of both the EmCirque and Oscillations performance companies, she specializes in pole, straps, and hand balancing and will be teaching workshops in those areas.

Here to talk about pole as an Olympic sport during SXSW Interactive, she will also be teaching four workshops and be available for individual and group Private Lessons. Check out more of her inspiring work on her website, Instagram, and YouTube.

Her current Sky Candy workshop lineup is:

All of her workshops are $75/per person for a 90 minute session. We recommend signing up in advance, because we expect these classes to fill quickly due to her social media fame.

If a workshop you’re interested in fills up before you can sign up, contact our Front Desk to be added to the waitlist. Students often have to drop out of things last minute, and also, if enough people express interest, we may be able to add an additional time for a popular class.

She will also have some Private Lesson availability on Saturday, March 14th after 5:30pm and Monday, March 16th before 3:30pm and after 7:30pm. Visit our Workshop page for more detailed descriptions of each offering or to sign up online. Contact our Front Desk for more info or to book a Private Lesson with Elizabeth.
