About Kansas City Aerial Arts
Our mission is to provide aerial and acrobatic education that fosters student growth in fitness, confidence, and emotional development. We strive to be a unique voice in the evolving KC Arts Community.
KC Aerial Arts was founded in 2013 (then known as “Lucia Aerial”) by Jenny Prohaska with the vision of making aerial arts education and entertainment accessible to Kansas City.
Under the direction of Daniel Parks, we became “KC Aerial Arts” in June 2018 and we move forward with the same vision as always: to nurture a sense of empowerment and wonder through aerial arts.
