Flight Academy, class of 2015! Time to soar from the deck and fly high! In this elective series, you'll be trained from the ground up to be pilots and flyers with super fun, flashy, and safe lifts and aerials for swing or other dances. We'll build from solid fundamentals to make sure everyone is safe and comfortable. Top Gun ain't got nothin' on you all after this series, get ready for some action!

PRE-REQUISITES: Partner required, as you'll be working as a team together for the whole series! Any combination of guys and gals are fine. Clothing should be comfortable, with no large buckles or other hard objects; bases and flyers should both wear level sole shoes (no heels please). No dance experience needed, but a sense of adventure required:) See you on the tarmac!
