For one night only, come to watch the best in Irish and international aerial dance and circus acts this December in Limerick, and be in with a chance to win some amazing prizes, all for a worthy cause.





The Irish Aerial Creation Centre (IACC) is holding a fundraising event on Saturday 15th December, 6.30pm. This is the first fundraiser of its kind to be held in Limerick. All money raised will ensure the IACC stays open and continues to be a home for children, adults and professionals alike to learn how to fly, whether it’s on an aerial hoop, trapeze, silks, vertical dance, and more.

The IACC is a not-for-profit organisation based in the Burlington Business park in Corbally. It is Ireland’s first purpose-fitted space for aerial dance and home to Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Theatre, the founders.

In the 4 years since the IACC has been open, the centre offers daily community classes for all ages, children up to adults as well as running professional training and residency opportunities for Irish and international artists. The IACC also works with the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, University Limerick, providing aerial modules to BA and MA students from the Academy who choose aerial as an elective.

Chantal McCormick, Founder, and CEO of the IACC feels Limerick has become the centre of aerial circus and is committed to continue to be the home for the aerial circus in Ireland:

“In 2014 we officially moved to Limerick and opened Ireland’s first purpose fitted training centre, to teach people aerial circus. Since then we have taught thousands of people and want to continue doing this. Everyone dreams of flying, so come join us and help us to ensure the IACC stays open and continues to be the centre in your community to learn, create and fly.”
