Aerial Workshops

with Liza Rose

New Orleans aerialist and circus educator Liza Rose is headed back to Sky Candy to teach even more workshops this September!

Liza specializes in Static Trapeze, Rope, Silks, Lyra, and Sling, informed by a background in dance and gymnastics. She also choreographs, produces, and directs both her own aerial and circus work and that of others.

Originally from Austin, Liza spent fifteen years studying and performing in NYC, LA, and Seattle, before settling in New Orleans in 2013. Highlights include working with Dance New Amsterdam, Manifold Motion, and Seattle Erotic Art Festival; residencies at Emerald City Trapeze Arts and FRED Wildlife Refuge, and co-founding REALM danceproject, ticktock, and Cirque Copine. She founded aerial and circus gym Fly Circus Space in 2016, the same year she was a finalist in the US Aerial Championships.

In addition to coaching and performing internationally, Liza is also a registered yoga teacher, NASM certified personal trainer, a certified nutrition coach, and is currently pursuing a degree in physical therapy.

Her workshops vary in length and cost, but all need a minimum of four signups to make. Each workshop will include a few specific muscle group activations, but attendees are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes early to take themselves through a more thorough warm-up sequence.

  • Inversions Clinic: Short Arm Technique on Thursday, September 9th at 7:15pm
  • Dynamic Sequencing on Lyra on Friday, September 10th at 5:30pm
  • Ways to Belay on Saturday, September 11th at 11:30am
  • Inversions Clinic: Long Arm Technique on Sunday, September 12th at 4pm

She will also be available these days for Private Lessons in Sling, Rope, Silks, Trapeze, and Lyra; contact Front Desk to book time or for more information.
