From Poland with aerial-love;)

All props are manufactured in Poland or in the European Union.
Justyna and dancing in the air
I am Justyna and I am the mother of tree-year-old Aleksander. My husband has a coffee roaster. We also have a depressed dog. It is fun with us every day, because we do what we love.
How did it start?
During my language studies, I met people dancing with fire. I learned this art. Later, juggling, unicycle and other activities of the circus without animals.
In 2008 I learned dancing in the air - on silks, hoop and trapeze. I knew hanging upside down was for me.
In 2009, I went to Barcelona to study. In fact, I went to circus school to learn aerial silks. That time it was not possible in Poland. After my return, I received 2 scholarships:
Marshal's scholarship Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship
Ministry of Culture scholarship.
Thanks to them, I opened the first circus space in Łódź in Poland.
Holidays in 2009 as always hitchhiking around Europe. This is how I got to know aerial yoga - in France. To pay for the course, my friend and I juggled at the traffic lights - even the local newspaper wrote about us;)
2009-2010 is the organization of international festivals in Toruń and the construction of aerial rig. A friend architect designed one rig for me according to my guidelines:
6m high, free-standing, aluminum. 100 kg, but it fits into a passenger car - I have it until today.
We lived off the shows, animations and workshops. 2010-1017 are the times of sailing in the ocean and seas with shows on the shores of ships. Times of summer travels and courses abroad. Times of shows at 12-30 and 43m! above the ground. Times of successes - awards and the breakup of our group in 2014.
From 2010, I knew that I needed fabric for silks and hammocks.
At that time, it was mainly imported from Germany.
But well - Łódź is a city of production.
I went for a few days to talk to producers and finally found a place where the MAG and JUST and AIR230 and NATURAL fabric was created.
Later it got a certificate and I started my own business - an online store with aerial equipment.
Since last year, I have been traveling with the shop to championships and tournaments in Poland.
The idea of sewing clothes arose.
A new passion - designing, agreeing, corrections and we managed to create a collection of clothes for acrobats.
The next step?
Building a house and business in a beautiful place near Łódź.
At home, of course, 8m to the ceiling and a scarf.
We would like a hammock or a scarf to be in every home - as a prop, toy, or swing.
That the aerial community in Poland would grow and meet at national and international events.
Since 2018, I have been working in the store with my dad - the most creative employee of the year;)
And with a friend (social media and others).
What do we do when we are not working?
For me, it's time with my family and training.
Dad dives and plays ping pong.
Ava is a dancer and she likes crafts.
And from March 2021 also with the mother (mother-in-law;) - it's that nice voice on the phone. Outside of work, you can meet her in the kitchen or on mountain trails;)
In addition to professional and certified props for aerial dancing and yoga, we also offer clothing, equipment and a free-standing structure for aerial acrobatics.
Since 2009 we practice and cooperate and create dance in the air, contemporary circus and aerial yoga.
Since 2010, we have been producing fabrics for aerial silks and hammocks on our special order.
We check our props in practice, so that they meet safety standards, meet Your needs, and please the eye and the camera.
All the props and clothing are the result of our experience and the needs of recipients - It is with you, that we create the equipment and clothes you need!
Since 2010, we have been running trainings, courses and workshops for children, adults and people with disabilities mainly in Poland.
We care about the promotion and development of aerial acrobatics, because it is a great passion that develops both the body and mind.
We are happy to help and advise - how to hang the equipment, what to choose ...
We have special price offers for schools and studios - we also help to plan the suspension of props in the room.
