Aerial circus goes flying for FUNds

first_img“ONCE you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”It’s very likely that the Irish Aerial Creation Centre (IACC) would agree with these words from the great Leonardo da Vinci.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Based in the Burlington Business Park in Corbally, the IACC is Ireland’s first purpose-fitted space for aerial dance and home to Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Theatre.In the four years since the not-for-profit organisation 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 at the University Limerick, providing aerial modules to BA and MA students from the Academy who choose aerial as an elective.Founder and chief executive of the IACC, Chantal McCormick says Limerick has become the centre of aerial circus and is committed to continuing to be the home for 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,” Chantal added.The IACC will hold a fundraising event on Saturday, December 15 at 6.30pm with all money raised going to ensure that the centre stays open and continues to be a home for children, adults and professionals with a dream if learning how to fly, whether it’s on an aerial hoop, trapeze, silks, vertical dance, or some of the other spectacular skills practiced by Fidget Feet.“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,” Chantal explains.Tickets are on sale now. Children are admitted free when accompanied by an adult.

Daniele Scardina, Francesco Patera score impressive wins in Milan

first_imgA low blow by Patera in the third round caused a short delay before the rapid pace continued. Hyland (20-2, seven KOs) gave it his all in the fourth but was reckless in his attack. Patera responded by showing his pedigree with an onslaught of hooks to the body.The fight was temporarily halted in the fifth when Hyland slipped on water in the corner. Another low blow from Patera paused the action again in a round that never really got going until the last 10 seconds when a left hook to the liver dropped Hyland for the second time in the fight.In the sixth, Hyland went down for the third time after another body shot, and it wasn’t long before the Belgian champ landed another to drop Hyland one last time. The referee called off the fight at 1:50 of the round. Daniele Scardina retained his IBF International super middleweight title with a classy unanimous decision victory over Alessandro Goddi at the Allianz Cloud in Milan, Italy, on Friday.Judges scored the 10-round bout 98-92, 96-94 and 96-94 for “King Toretto,” who was making his first title defense since beating Henri Kekalainen for the belt last March.  Scardina (17-0, 14 KOs) used his reach to keep Goddi (35-5-1, 17 KOs) at bay early, but Goddi worked to get past the jab and land on the inside. He got through on more than one occasion but to little effect.In the fourth round, Scardina landed an uppercut that sent his opponent backward. The champion, who hails from Rozzano, Italy, but fights out of Miami, then began to wear down his Sicilian foe with perfectly placed jabs, body shots and overhand rights en route to the comfortable decision.Join DAZN to watch pver 100 fights a yearCo-main event: Francesco Patera continues reign with sixth-round TKO of Paul Hyland Jr.Patera made his second defense of the EBU European lightweight title and extended his unbeaten run to four fights since losing to Edis Tatli in December 2017.Both men started at a frantic pace and traded hooks from the opening bell, with Patera (22-3, eight KOs) focusing mainly on the body. An accidental clash of heads at the end of the Round 1 caused cuts to Patera’s right eye and the top of Hyland’s head.Hyland looked to focus on the cut to Patera’s eye in the second round but left himself open to the counter, and Patera landed a right hand to score a knockdown with 10 seconds left in the round.last_img read more
