I Love Moving – online classes

Our brilliant teachers have created a variety of uplifting classes, during the Covid-19 lockdowns, to release tension, grow strength and stamina, deepen flexibility and mobility, but above all make us happy through movement from the cosiness of our homes, free as if we were breathing fresh sea air at the beach.

Inflight was a professional development opportunity for 20 emerging artists already involved in physical sports or arts forms, who wanted to expand their skill base and employability by training in aerial work.


The programme was created and delivered in partnership with WAC Arts in Camden and Upswing Aerial. 

The aims were to remove barriers to access aerial training, increase the diversity of performers in the industry and offer free-high quality training to emerging artists. Emerging artists participated in intensive training in trapeze, cocoon, silks, rope and harness techniques – abseiling and bungee. 

The programme culminated in a site-specific promenade performance co-created with theatre maker Leo Kay, In Flight from Home. 

Supported by public funds Arts Council England.
