AYA: An Aerial Ballet

WORLD PREMIERE Saturday October 10 and 17, 2015

AYA, an evening-length aerial ballet in three acts, combines the soaring precision of aerial dance with captivating contemporary ballet. 

AYA expands on Surge, the initial collaboration between Aerial Dance Chicago and Elements Contemporary Ballet. Premiering to sold-out crowds in 2014, Surge was hailed by the Chicago Tribune as "Magnificent...a jam-packed visual wonder [that is] seamlessly thrilling."

Merging two different dance mediums to create a thrilling theatrical experience and featuring an original dance narrative performed by a cast of over 25 aerial and contemporary ballet dancers, AYA is a production unlike anything before it. 


Tickets are sold through the Athenaeum website.
