sky candy collective
Sky Candy was founded in July 2010 by a group of experienced aerialists who wanted to share the love of their circus art with Austin, TX. The aerial arts are at once athletically challenging and ethereally beautiful. Our collective members create and perform original works in both theatrical and event settings. Sky Candy’s mission is to share our love of aerial and circus arts with Austin, TX. We exist to foster a safe and supportive community for learning, performance and collaboration.The Sky Candy Studio offers classes, workshops and private instruction in a variety of aerial, circus, dance, performance and fitness disciplines that cater to students of all skill levels, ages, abilities and aspirations. Our instructors come from a wide variety of backgrounds including aerial arts, circus, dance, creative movement, and theatre, and are passionate about sharing their skills with our students. We encourage all of our students to learn collaboratively in a safe, supportive atmosphere. Sky Candy produces two to three theatrical productions yearly, building on the artistic disciplines of the theatre and the circus and melding these creative traditions to create breathtaking works of aerial drama. We collaborate with other Austin artists, including writers, visual artists, musicians, composers and video artists to create an entirely new genre of performance art-aerial theatre!
