AirAligned aerial dance group
AirAligned aerial dance group was formed in 2002 by Artistic Director Tresa Honaker. Unlike traditional circus performers AirAligned members consist of formally trained dancers. AirAligned is a theatrical aerial dance group. Productions are beautifully choreographed and athletically executed. The group has received additional training in the aerial arts from Ingrid Hoffman, Hollywood Aerial Arts and Cirque LA in Los Angeles, Trapeze Arts in Oakland and San Francisco Circus Center.
Nevada City Dance Festival
The Nevada City Dance Festival is presented with assistance from a California Arts Council Local Impact Grant. The CAC Local-Impact Grant of $10,800 is a matching grant, and as such, requries the support of the community which it has been awarded. Ticket sales alone will not help us match the grant funds. Sponsorships are critical to the on-going success ofthe Nevada City Dance Festival. The goals of the Nevada City Dance Festival are:
- Exposure of a wide range of local dance students to professional choreography.
- Exposure of professional dance companies to Nevada County and the Miners Foundry Cultural Center
- Developing the foundation for long-term relationships with professional dance companies and encouraging formation of permanent residency programs in our community.
- Nuturing community involvement in the creative artistic processes of professional dance.
