Our Aerial Dance Program

The first time FDC owner, Leslie Murphy, saw an aerial dance performance, she fell in love!  In 2007 she auditioned to be a part of the aerial dance program at Webster University headed by Monica Newsam and hasn't stopped flying since.  After graduation, Leslie performed with En L'Air Aerial Dance Company for 2 years and in 2015 she formed the first full Aerial Dance Program in Jefferson County and St. Louis.

At Formations, aerial classes are offered for ages 5 & up and are separated by age & skill level.  Leslie's classes focus mostly on silks, as she feels they are the fundamentals of aerial dance, however, the lyra, trapeze & hammock is included in our annual aerial showcase.  Dancers can expect to gain strength, technique, flexibility and self-confidence.

We are so proud of our aerial dancers!  Check out our most recent showcase to see what we can do:
