In 2012, an aerial, flow and fire program was developed under the umbrella a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing healthy alternatives for youth. By 2014, the program grew to include kids and adults of all physical abilities. MASC became its own entity; offering classes for the public, and also launched Missoula’s first organized performers guild for aerial and flow arts. In its fifth year, the company is well known by its catchy acronym ‘MASC,’ and has expanded to a 5000 sq ft facility. Aerial and other programs are flourishing for kids and adults within the studio, and community collaborations with programs and organizations such as Flagship, Spark, Lifelong Learning Center, Freestone Climbing Gym, Turning the Wheel, MUST gym, Freedom Within, and the University of Montana. Our Resident Performance Artists are enjoyed by many audiences at diverse events and celebrations region wide!
