Camp Fire and Stomping Ground are hosting a FREE aerial workshop. Come learn to climb and dance on the tissu (aerial fabric), improve your technique and flaunt your grace in the air! All you need to bring are some tight pants, a shirt to cover your stomach (prevents rope burn!) and your eagerness to learn. The workshop is free, however donations are always appreciated.

What a fun and adventurous  way to try something new!

Dive

Inspired by a curiosity about our country’s careless habit of sending food straight to landfills, the multi- award-winning documentary DIVE! follows filmmaker Jeremy Seifert and friends as they dumpster dive in the back alleys and gated garbage receptacles of Los Angeles’ supermarkets. In the process, they salvage thousands of dollars’ worth of good, edible food – resulting in an inspiring documentary that is equal parts entertainment, guerrilla journalism and call to action.

There will also be a post screening Q&A.
