Airborne Festival -
Honoring the Legacy of Robert Davidson.

Our Aerial Dance festival honors the artistic seeds Robert Davidson sowed through decades of teaching and performing. For Davidson an aerial apparatus was not inanimate - it was a partner to dance with and he introduced hundreds of artists to the expressive potential of Aerial Dance. The festival offers a slice of Modern Dance/Aerial Dance history and shows the diverse directions Davidson's ideas have grown to encompass.

The festival performances on September 15 and 16, 2018 will feature guest aerial artists from across the U.S. whose aerial artistry began with Davidson.

Hey amazing donors,

Thanks to all of you we are celebrating that we are now past our 1/3 goal mark - the campaign is at $1,050. Hurray!

This week we are asking folks to donate in increments of $15. We picked 15 because there are 14 artists performing in the festival plus films of Bob dancing – That is 15 artists!

Please help us reach out to more donors by sharing our campaign with others on Facebook or sending an email to folks you know.

Thank you, again, for all your support!
Best regards,

Did you know a person with a 15 in a prominent position in their numerology chart is concerned about others and tends to nurture whenever the opportunity arises?
