Light On Their Feet

_Blue Lapis Light_, an aerial dance company based in Austin, is making another leaping impression.

Spiderman is not the only one flying through the air with the greatest of ease this summer. Blue Lapis Light, an aerial dance company based in Austin, is making another leaping impression downtown this month with its newest site-specific performance piece, Constellation.

The company's performers incorporate aerial techniques along with interpretive and modern dance movements, while being suspended in the air by cables.

The athleticism and grace of the dancers against the concrete construction of the buildings will leave mouths gaping, and perhaps motivate you to try one of the company's aerial arts workshops.

Sometimes "strings attached" is positive reinforcement.
