Calling all aerial nerds! Time to kick back and get a dose of knowledge from one of the leading creators in the US aerial scene, Dara Minkin.

Shannon talks to Dara about her pursuit to organize and clarify the concepts that are universal to all aerial apparatus in her new book: Proximal. Dara talks about how different forms of dance, her dreams, and mathematics inform her approach to teaching and performing in the air.
