Frequent Flyers' Student Company presents "Scrooge's Holiday Flight", a holiday favorite with an aerial twist
Frequent Flyers® Aerial Dance takes Charles Dickens' "Christmas Carol" and turns it upside down, literally! With performances on low-flying trapeze, stilts, hoop, chains, aerial fabric and much more. Audiences will join Scrooge as he is visited by 3 Holiday Ghosts from the past, present, and future where he discovers how the desire for love, harmony and compassion can overcome greed and take one to new heights. "Scrooge's Holiday Flight" is performed by Frequent Flyers' student company, more than 50 strong, and members of the professional company. Come soar into the holidays with Frequent FlyersÂ® as we all discover the power of love, dance, and community!
