My very quiet partner in crime is at it again. Saving the world one knee hang at a time. For those of you not in the know, my partner Heather runs an aerial dance studio here in Denver. She is having a fundraiser this weekend for the Climbing Walls: Youth Circus for a Brighter Future. She is raising money for travel expenses to Israel to bring Arab, Jews, Ethiopians, Russian, Druze, Christians, youth at risk, Israeli groups and overseas through the medium of circus arts. She will be fulfilling a lifelong dream to improve international relations by creating bonds through physical activity. Hopefully she will be sharing some of her experiences here when she returns.
The fundraiser should be a hoot including aerial acrobatics and dancing set to Hebrew and Middle Eastern music, local art and raffles for private aerial lessons, private parkour lessons, pilates lessons, pole dancing lessons, photography books, and jewelry hand-crafted specifically for this peace promoting event. If you would like to contribute to her journey you can either attend her fundraiser this Sunday or donate online you can find all that information here http://miraasaerial.com/ClimbingWalls.php.
If you want to know more about social circus programs like the one Heather will be participating in I highly recommend watching this clip from the documentary “Circus Kids”.
