Flying for FUNds aerial circus fundraiser

  • Irish Aerial Creation Centre IACC fundraising event

For one night only, come watch the best in Irish and international aerial dance and circus acts this December in Limerick, and be in with a chance to win some amazing prizes, all for a worthy cause.

The Irish Aerial Creation Centre (IACC) is holding a fundraising event on Saturday 15th December, 6.30pm. This is the first fundraiser of its kind to be held in Limerick. All money raised will insure the IACC stays open and continues to be a home for children, adults and professionals alike to learn how to fly, whether it’s on an aerial hoop, trapeze, silks, vertical dance, and more.

The IACC is a non-for-profit organisation based in the Burlington Business park in Corbally. It is Ireland’s first purpose-fitted space for aerial dance and home to Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Theatre, the founders.

In the four years since the IACC has been open, the centre offers daily community classes for all ages, children up to adults, as well as running professional training and residency opportunities for Irish and international artists. The IACC also works with the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, University Limerick, providing aerial modules to BA and MA students from the Academy who choose aerial as an elective.

Founder and CEO of the IACC Chantal McCormick says Limerick has become the centre of aerial circus and is committed to continue to be the home for aerial circus in Ireland:

“In 2014 we officially moved to Limerick and opened Ireland’s first purpose fitted training centre, to teach people aerial circus. Since then we have taught thousands of people and want to continue doing this. Everyone dreams of flying, so come join us and help us to ensure the IACC stays open and continues to be the centre in your community to learn, create and fly.”

The fundraiser runs from 6.30pm - 9.30pm/late, with amazing aerial performances from national and international aerialists, followed by a DJ. There will be a raffle, spot prizes, goodie bags and surprises on the night, so don’t miss this fun pre-Christmas event. Raffle prizes on the night include a signed slither from the Limerick Hurling team, group aerial workshops, aerial party, Hook & Ladder voucher, The Flower Studio, meal for two in Ramen, Keanes Jewellers and many more. Thank you to the University of Limerick Foundation for sponsoring the event.
