This past July, AMEBA celebrated its 15th Anniversary! To celebrate, the entire AMEBA organization put together an incredible workshop at the Urbana Art Museum. In this amazing exhibition that showcased amazing acrobatic and aerial works of art from various disciplines, guest speakers included Champ, Roger Black, Matt Ferreira, Renzo Gracie, ickson Brage, Rogerio Cesar Sosa, Joao Camacho, Daniel Costera, Hector Cepeda, Flavio Costanati, and Diego Santana. Also joining the fray were the members of the AMEBA Team, including myself, Ruben Barros, Daniel Veddos, Daniel Diaz, Ramel Bradley, and Estrella Gomes. It was a great honor for everyone to be a part of this very unique exhibition and workshop.

I have always been interested in martial arts, especially acrobatic and aerial combat. However, I did not know much about it until I attended the London Olympics a few years ago. At the time, I was really impressed by how Olympic athletes carried themselves during competition. I was awestruck when I saw the gymnasts and swimmers do acrobatic routines during the Closing Ceremony. I have never seen anything like that before and was very eager to attend the AMEBA’s August seminar in Chicago. My visit was documented in an article I wrote for The London Times.

A Much Ado

During the second day of the exhibition, I had the opportunity to meet some of the world-class athletes from Team GB, including rower Helen Jeffreys and fencing athlete Adam Scott. I was very impressed by their high levels of athleticism, but I was most inspired by their passion for their sport. During the course of our meeting, the Team GB coach, Glen Jackson, explained how the team trained and worked to achieve such high levels of skill. He also showed me some of the many Bungee Cords they used. I was really impressed with the professionalism and dedication of the athletes, which made me realize that being involved in acrobatic & aerial work could be very rewarding.

The next day, I went to see the athletes perform on the second day of my visit. I watched as they performed their routines on the dance floor, and I was really struck by how impressive their skills were. I was blown away by their strength and grace, and I was really inspired by the enthusiasm with which they performed their routines. I would love to see these talented young people get the recognition that they deserve, and I would encourage any athlete, male or female, to give it a go!

In Chicago, there are several qualified and experienced acrobatic & aerial dancers to help you out. These dancers are fully qualified and trained in a number of different positions, so you can ask them for advice on what position you could try out and get training. They can also give you a great recommendation of local places to try out if it is your first time in the area.
