COVID-19 has been hard on us all, but especially those in the arts, fitness, and performance world!! Swing State Aerial has suffered along everyone else, and now has come to the end of prior grant, loan, and other aid funds, AND we can no longer teach classes outside during the winter!
To top off our ongoing struggles, our bank card information was grabbed by a total jerkface ninnymuggings of a skimmer, and it left us totally devastated and with zero funds for our ongoing costs like our scheduling platform, insurance, internet service, and website. We are working with our bank and police to find the thieves, but in the meantime we do still need to keep going!
If you have ever flown with us, taken a class, admired our silks, and want to help us out, any amount will help keep us from having to close. You can also visit our website (www.swingstateaerial.com) and purchase gift certificates, class packages, sign up for online classes, or get your own custom-dyed silks! We will honor class credits purchased during covid-times when we are finally able to teach regular classes again. We are also happy to pass on generosity from purchased gift cards or packages to students who are also struggling with their means at this time - every dollar will translate into 10 minutes of online class time we will offer to students in need.
Dance and aerial arts have been a long time dream for us, and it has been so exciting to see our business thrive for the past few years. Please, please help us limp through this winter so we can soar again!
