Welcome Stranger Aerial Spectacular Offers Haunting Performances on October 19 & 20


SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA (October 2, 2018) – Levity® Academy, San Luis Obispo, a new 1,250-square-foot aerial silks and circus arts studio offering students and artists a full schedule of aerial arts classes for all ages and skill levels, announces its inaugural studio performance on Friday, October 19 and Saturday, October 20, 2018. Welcome Stranger Aerial Spectacular begins at 7 p.m. each night (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) and features a demonic MC as well as local performers dancing across the ceiling to thrilling and chilling aerial silks, rope, lyra (aerial hoop) and other acrobatic acts set to spooky, Halloween themes and music.

Levity® Academy owners recommend the show for mature audiences only, due to the dark nature of the theme.

“This will be the first in studio production for Levity® Academy,” says Co-Owner Gigi Penton, “so we are very excited to invite SLO County audiences behind the curtain for a stunning show with an intimate cast of performers. Welcome Stranger Aerial Spectacular will really demonstrate the depth of aerial talent here at the studio as well as introduce guests to the fresh, inviting aerial arts space at Levity® Academy.”

The recently remodeled warehouse space opened its doors in June 2018 to reveal a bright, elegant studio featuring a clean, white backdrop with natural wood and earth-tone accents. Large indoor plants and minimalist décor give the space a serene, elevated vibe. “Although,” Penton says, “for this show, we will definitely stage the space with creepy Halloween decorations and spooky lighting.” For the Welcome Stranger Aerial Spectacular, she explains, seating will also be arranged throughout the studio so that audiences will be fully immersed in the chilling performances.

Welcome Stranger also offers audiences a peek into Levity® Academy’s curriculum. The studio offers a spectrum of classes based on age and ability so that youth, teens, and adults can feel comfortable and learn with their peers. Gigi explains that classes are led by highly-trained teachers with more than 20 years of combined aerial experience.

“We also know what it’s like to be a beginner, a mom, a former dancer, or someone who’s stepping out of their comfort zone. There’s a lot of empathy and encouragement.”

Levity Academy is located at 207 Suburban Road in San Luis Obispo. Doors open for the show at 6:30 p.m. each night, and acts begin at 7 p.m. Tickets ($22) can be purchased online at https://my805tix.com/organizations/levity-avademy to guarantee chair seating. Tickets at the door guarantee entry and either floor seating or standing room. Any remaining chairs will be available on a first come, first serve basis at the start of show. Light refreshments are included with ticket price.
