Our hope is to uplift and inspire our students to reach new heights and give expression to their inner beauty.
We offer aerial silk classes to our community and visiting artists. Throughout the year, our dance classes provide a unique challenge and offer a creative way for students to develop strength and grace while exploring aerial movement.
Blue Lapis Light also offers aerial workshops for colleges, high schools and community organizations. These workshops are uniquely designed for every project, providing an exceptional dance experience for all participants. We can host master classes at our studio or visit your location to conduct site-specific work.
Each summer we offer the Children’s Aerial Creation Workshop where children work together exploring imaginative aerial movement. At the end of the week, they present their innovative and original work to friends and family members.
Blue Lapis Light also provides movement workshops for children from regional foster care and guardianship organizations such as LifeWorks, the Austin Children’s Shelter, and The BeHive Austin.

Class attire is tight-fitting workout clothes and bare feet. Capri-length pants are recommended. Long tight-fitting pants work, but may need to be rolled up for certain vocabulary. Leotards and unitards are also recommended as they will provide more coverage for your skin. Students may want to bring a shirt with sleeves to protect their under arms. Clothes that are too baggy may become tangled in the cloth, and loose clothing or short shorts may fall over your face or gather into uncomfortable positions. Students should refrain from wearing jewelry that will snag or rip aerial fabric, this includes diamond or rings with sharp edges, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, pants with obtrusive zippers and buttons, diamond-encrusted sports bras, etc.
If students miss a class, they can be made up in Open Studio. Open Studios are for enrolled students or students who have taken aerial classes with Blue Lapis Light. Open Studios are $15 (unless you are making up a class). A 6 week Open Studio Pass is available for $100. Open Studios are intended as self-guided practice with supervision by instructors. They are scheduled Fridays 7-8:30pm and Sundays 3:00-5:00pm.
All classes and open studios are at the Blue Lapis Light Studio at 10331 Old Manchaca Rd, Unit B, Austn TX, 78748. It is located 1 mile south of Slaughter Rd (map here: 10331 Old Manchaca Road, Unit B)
