Swing Aerial Booklet

Information Design &Illustration


When learning swing-dancing aerials, the continual momentum and commitment required can be daunting for those transitioning from the basic step to the more complex moves. This booklet solves that problem by breaking down three swing aerials into still images with corresponding instructions for both the lead and follow as they learn the move. The color maps out the areas of contact between the dancer’s bodies, showing exactly what positions, lifts, and directions are involved in completing each move.
