Grounded Aerial is A dance company that flies

Grounded Aerial is on a mindful mission to keep the world at play. 

We excite and elevate people around the world through education & performance. Our classes joyfully mix fitness, personal growth, and aerial movement and our shows integrate dance, flight, theater, and spectacle.

Since 2002, we continue to pioneer the aerial world with classes, workshops, bungee certifications, and performances. We soar with focus while remaining grounded in our mission.  Dreaming without constraints, we actualize the vision and take it to the next level.

We are leaders in bungee art and pioneers of aerial exploration. Not only is it an art that you can see and appreciate, but now you can try and DO it!  

Grounded Aerial® is an experience that is a woven tapestry of mind, spirit, and body.  

We believe in Truth. Play. Authenticity. Investigation.  

We are inspired by the consistent bravery it takes to let go and be joyful. We hope our classes, shows, and training inspire you to do the same.

Karen, a star in her own right (see professional dance bio here), has her MA in Dance Education and has been a professor at numerous universities, while Jason is a respected elite gymnast and an award winning coach.

We have certified over 145 people in Bungee Teacher Trainings, visiting host studios that now teach Grounded Aerial around the globe. Teaching safety, creativity, and effective teaching strategies has made us respected pioneers in the bungee fitness industry.

“When you tell Karen you would like to suspend aerialists over water, or off the side of a high rise…she takes it further by telling you (not “NO WAY” ) but instead, exactly how she plans to do that for you and add even more wow to it.”

“My friends and I had an absolute blast! We all did our first class at the Performance Garage. My abs hurt so bad the next day from working out and laughing the entire time! Added bonus, Karen is SO much fun and so talented. She really made it such a fun experience.“

“Karen’s passion for bungee training is infectious! Such a cool and fun experience! The training is so informative and she really devotes herself to helping you learn every aspect of the course! “
