Stop by Aerial Space in Asheville and you might just encounter a real-life fairy (tattooed wings and all) swinging from the ceiling by an ankle. The winged woman in question would be Blue Deleeuw, a 41-year-old flying trapeze artist and owner of the studio, an educational facility specializing in aerial silks, trapeze and aerial yoga. This month, you can catch her students doing aerial stunts too, some of them as young as 7 doing tricks suspended in mid-air. Deleeuw, a former dancer in the San Francisco Ballet who trained at the San Francisco School of Circus Arts (no joke), threw her life savings into her one-year-old West Asheville facility, where she teaches people of all ages about roll-ups, dives and drops.
The student showcase is April 23 from 1-3pm at Aerial Space. For details, visitwww.aerialspace.org. Deleeuw also performs at the French Broad River Festival April 29-May 1.
