Leeds Aerial Arts

Leeds Aerial Arts is owned and managed by Lorna Mackinder-Clark, Lorna was awarded a ‘Kickstart’ fund from Yorkshire Dance in 2013 to bring aerial to Leeds. We run classes in aerial hoop, silks, yoga & sling, all taught by our dedicated and fabulous team of instructors.
After years of renting out venues, in June 2018 we opened our dedicated Leeds City Centre base. The space is fully equipped with a purpose built aerial rig and vinyl dance floor. We are lucky to boast a light and airy studio with a cosy waiting area and space to stretch out before and after class. The names of those who helped us to build our studio are proudly displayed on our wall!
We also teach for ‘Vertical Fitness’ the Pole & Aerial society at the University of Leeds.
Despite lockdown our wonderful Aerial Community feels stronger and more connected than ever.
In this time we have:
• Created a timetable of LIVE ONLINE classes to compliment the aerial training.
• Shared FREE challenges including balancing a shoe on your foot (Maisie) and the #pullupbar challenge
• Built an AERIAL ON DEMAND library of #aerialhoop moves, sequences and transitions. Accompanied by a blog of technique tips.
• Enjoyed a virtual PARTY to mark 2 years of the #leedsaerialarts studio
• Linked up with new instructors @louisblairpt and @dorarubinstein as well as creating a photo challenge with @eyehartphotography
• Launched ANYTIME pre-recorded classes for our aerialists to train anytime, anywhere.
We also created a crowdfunding page to which our supporters have generously supported us. We have designed new limited editions tops to thank those who supported us through this time.
