100 Colorado Creatives: Nancy Smith of Frequent Flyers Aerial Dance

#74: Nancy Smith The sky's not the limit for Frequent Flyers founder and director Nancy Smith, who literally hangs around most days at her Boulder aerial-dance studio: teaching, choreographing, visualizing, directing and dancing, sometimes in an upside-down position. It's a rare profession, with one hand reaching clear up into the stratosphere, and if you want to learn more about it here in Colorado, you'll want to fly up and see Smith.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
