Frequent Flyers®

Frequent Flyers® Productions is a non-profit based in Boulder, Colorado, founded in 1988 — pioneering the art form of aerial dance through teaching and performance for over 25 years. Our performers venture indoors and out, blending aerial work seamlessly with dance. Vampires, a period Swing piece, comic book heroes, hanging from buildings, and even holiday travel take place on all manner of flying apparatus, ensuring Frequent Flyers Productions' a vibrant place in your memory. Education encompasses aerial classes for the community 11 months each year, a professional training program, our international Aerial Dance Festival, private lessons, team building, and outreach for schools and youth-at-risk.

Frequent Flyers® Productions, Inc. (FFP) was founded in 1988 by artistic director Nancy Smith. Ms. Smith and her work with FFP have received top honors in Colorado: Women Who Light the Community 2007, The Colorado Dance Alliance 2005 Cutting Edge Award; the 1997 Glenwood Springs Dance Festival's Choreographer's Project Award, the 1996 AHAB/Neodata Choreographer's Fellowship, the 1993 Pacesetter's Award for Arts & Entertainment and the 1990 Arts Innovation Award for Excellence in Dance, as well as numerous grants from corporations, foundations, and government agencies. FFP is one of fewer than 30 professional aerial dance companies in the US. The company produces the only Aerial Dance Festival of its kind in the world.
