It’s the darkest, quietest, coldest time of the year. There are no birds singing in the mornings, nor the sounds of joy from the children in the yard. The trees appear dead, as not a single leaf remains. The lack of color can darken the soul. It is winter. Deep Winter.
Join us as we break the silence of the season with the loudest, heaviest music we can find. Call forth the spring with performances on the ground and in the air.
Our first ever Ice & Embers show is a nod to We Will Raq You (RIP), a metal belly dance show that we took part in for many years. We are so happy to bring this theme back for those wanting to break the winter silence with their incredible metal performances.
This will be an 18+ show due to adult music and themes.
In this creative aerial hoop immersion, you’ll work on how to create your own movement choreography by immersing yourself in hoop theory, movement quality, and artistic development. Gena will help you with ways to explore skills and variations as well as unique transitions that are authentic to you as an artist. Each day we will delve into how to do your own creative research and develop your own unique movement pathways. This immersion allows you to research and explore your own movement in, on, and above the bar.
Note-taking is encouraged; bring a notebook, iPad, or your phone. Socks and clothing that cover the midriff are recommended.
PREREQUISITES: Clean, unassisted inversions, comfort with spinning, and an understanding of body awareness are required. Must have a basic comprehension of intermediate lyra skills that can be executed without jumping.
Our longest-running and most popular show is scheduled for July 23rd, 2022. Performance applications are already open for our crown jewel of events! You have until April 15th to get your audition in. We can’t wait to Bloom again with you, once again.
We are welcoming back Critters & Tea Performance on March 19, 2022. This is a fun aerial and dance show allowing those to express child like wonder, fun and silly performances or cute acts that performers feel may not fit other places.
Shadows is beautiful and deep show, allowing those to let go of the baggage in their lives. So Bloom wanted to create a space to almost “detox” from that experience. Aerial and dance are incredibly moving arts. Allow this year’s Critters & Tea Showcase allow you to smile during the end of winter.
We look forward to seeing your beautiful faces there. Interested in performer? Apply here!
Loops are a versatile apparatus that give you so many options for shapes, drops, and EXPLORATION! Students will learn two short choreos and have some time to flex their aerial brain to find their own transitions between them.
Are you interested in working in tandem with another person in the air? Then this workshop is for you! We will be focusing mainly on weight sharing and dynamic movement as a duo on hard apparatus (lyra and trapeze specifically).
This is Bloom Movement Artistry’s first Student Performance Bonanza! We can’t wait to watch our hard working and talented students present their creations to you. Limited tickets are available so grab yours soon.
A little over two years ago, Sarah and I had an idea. After running Bloom for over six years at that point, we had gotten such great feedback about our community. The thing that we kept hearing, year after year, was that our performers really enjoyed having a stage on which they could be vulnerable. Now, you may be thinking, “isn’t all performance vulnerable?”. While that is true, there is a difference between making art for yourself and making art for someone else. Making art for someone else is what most professional performers find themselves being required to do. This art is usually safe. It’s usually a beautiful, bright combination of our greatest skills, show-stopping strengths, and lovely lines. That art is not always what makes us tick though. As performers who rely on our art to make a living, we know that this is required. And yes, it can be fun and challenging and a joy to put out into the world…but that’s just one aspect of who we are as artists.
So, we created a theme different than any of our other shows. Shadows is exactly what it sounds like. It is a moment in our lives to take the stage and share what may be too dark to put into the world for corporate events or family festivals. It is a walk with our shadow selves, letting them come out to play because we truly believe that if we don’t acknowledge them, they can poison our lives. So we put together a show to celebrate the darkness. To let out what may be scary or painful in a safe setting, surrounded by others who will lift you up. Art is one of our greatest forms of healing, and you will witness healing happening at this show. This year’s Shadows will feature 16 performances, created and presented to you by artists of different levels of experience and different styles. We will have artists performing on aerial silks, sling, chains, straps, lyra, trapeze, as well as ground artists including belly dancers and burlesque dancers.
