Our March Artist of the Month is aerial artist, Leah Grandstaff!
Leah Grandstaff, a.k.a. LeahTard Wedgie, is a performing aerialist and circus instructor. Since finding aerial acrobatics and circus arts in 2013, she has been creating, performing, and instructing others in aerial arts, stilt-walking, and duo-trapeze. We were able to take a look inside Leah's studio, a space that she uses for creating and instructing others, located in the Walnut Workshops in the River North Art District. Check out the video below!
Empowerment through Aerial
Leah has found empowerment and growth through aerial arts and hopes to connect others to the art form, because it has made such an impact for her in her own life. For that reason, she has crafted an AirBnB Experience for Aerial Movement. For those looking to try out aerial, this is an accessible and nurturing environment for a person to begin and grow. She also offers private and semi-private instruction in her studio for anyone interested in exploring the aerial arts.
Leah has two exciting events coming up this month on Friday March 27th at the Colorado Aerial Arts Summit. She will be performing in a trapeze duo as well as co-teaching a workshop on trapeze work.
