A Day in the Life of an Aerial Artist

The Dance Enthusiast talks to Grounded Aerial

These modern day superheroes don’t shy away from the public eye – you’ve seen them on TV, at circuses, or at that swanky nightclub in Las Vegas. If you live in New York City, guess what? Aerial artists move among us.

Founded by Karen A. Fuhrman in 2007, Grounded Aerial has been producing jaw-dropping dance with a daring team that knows no vertigo. Grounded Aerial has set itself apart from most existing aerial troupes by presenting equal parts aerial stunts, dance choreography, and theatrical performance. In 2011, the company was listed among one of Bizbash Magazine’s “50 Best Ideas of the Past 10 Years.”
