Aerial dance is an emerging form of circus arts with roots in modern dance, which has gained a large following. As this is a relatively new type of performance art, there is much need for new tricks, techniques, styles, and apparatus invention. In the creative process I designed a performance piece in the modern aerial dance style, as well as created original tricks, techniques, apparatus uses, and styles within each act. To showcase the results, I performed the final product with fellow aerial students and instructors to the theme of "Under the Sea", and produced the show via video recording. The goal for this process and performance is to make a small addition to the world of aerial dance, and show the potential for even larger contributions to the aerial arts as a whole.
