The company combines elements of tango, hip-hop, and modern dance into a kinetic new form in which dancers break boundaries of style and gravity.
Brenda Angiel Aerial Dance Company has been innovating the aerial dance form since 1994 from its home in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Audiences are thrilled by performers dancing against the walls, on the floor, and floating through the air to the beats of an entirely original score.
The company has performed extensively in Buenos Aires and throughout Argentina, as well as Puerto Rico, the Netherlands, Austria, Brazil, Colombia, Canada, the US, Mexico, China and many other countries.
