program overview

Om Factory's Kids Aerial Act Creation Series challenges budding acrobats to take skills from their aerial practice and combine them with elements of dance, theatre & creative movement to produce their very own act — and then perform it for family & friends at the final recital! This workshop series meets on four to five days, culminating with a performance at Om Factory’s Semi-Annual Kids Aerial Recital. Registered students must be available for ALL sessions as well as the dress rehearsal.

MEET our kids' program director

Enrolling in OFSY's Aerial Yoga Teacher Training remains the second best decision of Liz’s life... the first of course, was to run away and join the circus.

 

Working with Cirque du Soleil and their outreach program Cirque du Monde brought Liz all over the world and eventually landed her at Om Factory in New York where Liz teaches aerial yoga, dance, fitness & Lyra to both children and adults.

 

Teaching aerial acrobatics to children inspired her to participate in the

development of Om Factory’s Kids' Aerial Yoga Program.
