Vertical Addiction, aerial arts group performs at FTC

Portion of proceeds goes to Pink Agenda

Vertical Addiction, Stamford’s first and only complete aerial arts studio is hosting their 2016 Aerial Arts Showcase, Saturday Sept. 17, at the Fairfield Theatre Company, 70 Sanford Street, Fairfield. Due to the popularity of the first showcase, studio owner Ashley Popoli and co-producer Trevor Mullineaux will be hosting two shows. The afternoon show begins at 4 p.m. and will feature more than 12 beginner and intermediate level aerial dancers; the evening show begins at 8 p.m. and will feature more than 12 advanced level performers, group numbers and special guests.

Popoli and Mullineaux have organized this exciting event to promote awareness of aerial arts as a sport and fitness regimen, as well as offer local dancers and athletes a platform to showcase their talents for friends and family.

Since the aerial arts industry is predominately composed of women, Popoli and Mullineaux thought it would be fitting to team up with The Pink Agenda, a not-for-profit organization that supports breast cancer awareness, research and care. The Pink Agenda believes that engaging today’s generation can go a long way toward finding tomorrow’s cure for breast cancer. To help our sisters, a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to The Pink Agenda.

Pole fitness and aerial arts have been gaining recognition and popularity and has been featured in Advil’s Super Bowl commercial, The Weekend’s performance at the Oscars and most recently a silks dancer at a Germany soccer game. In addition, this sport has begun the long journey of submitting to become an Olympic sport. It is a physically challenging total body workout that combines strength training, flexibility, dance and fun.

Tickets for the event range from $30 to $65 and may be purchased in advance from The Fairfield Theatre Company at
