Ciel Aerial is an aerial dance performance and instruction company based in the Baltimore and Washington DC region. Ciel offers edgy, lyrical performances that will set your event apart, as well as fun, motivating lessons to help you meet your fitness and artistic goals.
Kate Winston, the founder of Ciel Aerial, has performed across the US, including at the Denver Aerial Acrobatic Arts Festival, the Baltimore Alley Aerial Festival, and the Nashville Fringe Festival. She has also performed internationally at the Irish Aerial Creation Centre, in Limerick, Ireland. Kate performs solo acts on silks, lyra and slings and duo acts with Gwynne Flanagan as part of their collaboration, Duo K+G.
Kate first studied aerial with Air Dance Bernasconi in Baltimore, where she fell in love with the aerial arts the first time she swung upside-down on a dance trapeze. Since then, she has studied with Arachne Aerial Arts, the New England Center for Circus Arts and many others. At NECCA, Kate trained as a fabric, trapeze and lyra instructor and she now teaches adult and youth throughout the DMV region. Kate’s goal as a teacher is to share with her students the empowering, creative and liberating experiences that aerial has to offer.
