WE CREATE MAGIC.
People come to us curious about flight. But the heart and soul of the AIREDANSE Collective is discovering each individual's unique and strange superpowers. We are artists, wordsmiths, musicians, mathematicians, movers, dreamers and more! 
Join us.

  Lauren Breese  CEO (Chief Executive Organizer). I lead classes, choreograph, edit our music and videos and ensure all goes down as planned. My wild imagination is bordering on insanity and I have been voted most likely to put you on stage in a hot second. Believe it or not, you can do this!

  Hector Sanchez  Leaps tall buildings while making lightning speed costume changes. If there's a stage to dance on, Hector will help make sure we're there and ready to dance and fly. Together, over the last 20 years we've fused just about every dance style imaginable. We've been accused of a lot of things, but being purists about anything is not one of them.

  Kaleena Quarles  A serial roamer, Kaleena travels relentlessly but when roosting in SB she performs regularly and teaches with AIREDANSE Wednesdays at 6:30 PM. Fame doesn't go to her head  (there’s a YouTube video of her doing an aerial number that has almost 30K views!) . She sings, she dances, she flies, and she’s fearless!

  Claire Lindstrom  Claire encountered our colorful flock in 1997 at BASSH. Her first aerial class was shortly thereafter and faster than a hummingbird she was performing. With her gymnastics background, Claire brings strength, beauty and cool walkovers to AIREDANSE performances!

  Tony Navarro  Our first dance collaboration with this amazing talent was in BASSH a few years ago when Tony helped us take one of our pieces to a new level of creepy with his amazing violin playing. He plays with a passion that brings us to tears, and most recently accompanied our epic 20-minute aerial dance drama entitled  "Dreamscape."
