Summerfly: 3rd Annual Upstate NY Acro Fest in Rochester!

August 18 – August 19, 2018

Aerial Arts of Rochester

565 Blossom Road

Rochester, NY 14610

Three years ago there was a dream to help grow the Upstate NY acro community around my region and bring some amazing regional and national talents to join hands to guide the way. This event will be our 3rd edition of this growing festival to celebrate our thriving acrobats and their evolving practice! This is a fest that is good for a beginner all the way to advanced. 16 hours of acrobatic fun with day only passes available. There is even time for private lessons with our starred faculty if you book in advance!

We will celebrate will a wonderful LIVE DJ Acro Dance Jam on Saturday night and a PIC Around Town hour to explore our lovely city and take acro pictures. Otherwise, the gym is equipped with safety mats that are wonderful to train on. I hope to see you there!
