In Flux Website Header.jpg

Polecats Manila is celebrating a decade of dance and movement! For ten years, we have been in a state of flux. Always looking for different ways to fly. Always trying ways to teach others to do the same. Always evolving to make sure our own journey in flight remains relevant in life outside the studio walls.

This group is made up of individuals, who when unleashed to go their own way, has each created a unique identity as an aerialist and artist. Every experience we have had as dancers and teachers, has helped us become the group we are today.

This is how we celebrate ten years of moving. This is us, ten years after realizing we could fly. Everything is a step up, a step in a different direction, a step away from what is familiar.

Join us for these special classes, and discover all the ways you have yet to soar. Let’s get ready for the week of fun >> October 21 - 26, 2019.
