First Flyday is a free community event Sky Candy hosts on the first Friday of every month. There are free Aerial & Pole Open Studios, and sometimes a Scratch Night, vendors or planned activities.
We are also keeping a lower cap on our Open Studio spaces than we have in the past, to limit the number of people in the studio at any given time. However, we are still including a lot of fun things!
** Scratch Night **
August’s First Flyday coincides with our next Scratch Night! If you don’t know, Scratch Night is an opportunity for students and staff to try out new ideas, workshop acts, or dip their toe into performance with a small, supportive audience. Sign up to perform ahead of time here or show up to be an audience member at 7pm!
** Make Some Magic in Open Studio **
Starting at 7pm, we invite experienced students to train and hang out with their fellow aerialists a/o polesters!
Open Studio during First Flyday is completely free, but we do ask that if possible, you sign up for a spot beforehand to reserve it. There are two Open Studio sessions; one in Charm for aerial and harness work and one in Hyrrokkin for pole practice.
