Aerial performance at Lewiston on Friday
LEWISTON – A circus? in Lewiston? In January?
With winter in full swing, it’s hard to imagine such a thing, but on Friday the band Aerial Jade bring their number to Park Street.
Dubbed the “Mid-Winter Aerial Showcase,” the performance takes place between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. at 22 Park St. and will feature six performers using everything from hoops to silks and lyra, an aerial hoop.
“There are six girls including myself who are being trained and we are going to do eight full performances,” said Danielle Hirsh, who runs Aerial Jade.
Hirsh is an artist who also works with a local burlesque group. She also teaches circus locally and the Friday night show will be her second aerial presentation in the area. The first was in October.
Tickets are $20 at the door.
