World-renowned contemporary choreographers Daniel Ezralow, David Parsons and Moses Pendleton, in collaboration with Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, creators of the percussion/theatre sensation STOMP, have joined forces with athletes from the Romanian Gymnastics Federation and created a soaring evening of entertainment. As a challenge to the law of gravity and binding the physical power of a team of ranked athletes with the creative genius of these remarkable individuals, AEROS is truly unique and the first in its genre. The athletes who comprise this unusual performance troupe range in age from 19 to 26. Five are World Champions in Artistic, Rhythmic and Sports Aerobics, while the others are European Champions. It was quite a feat to convince the sports directors at the Federation, hungry for gold medals, that they were not losing their prized athletes. On the contrary, the gymnasts who comprise AEROS remain active in world competitions and the combination of rehearsals, performances, training and competition brings an added dimension to their athletic talents.
