Manatee Players offers classes in aerial dance

   Manatee Players are offering young people a chance to learn to fly this summer. 
   But that means fly like Peter Pan, not fly like a pilot.
   An Illinois company called Hall Associates Flying Effects will conduct workshops in dance, aerial work and wire flying in two five-day workshops at the Manatee Performing Arts Center.
   The first camp, for kids from 7 to 12 years old, is set for July 22-26. Enrollment is limited to 25.
   The second camp, from July 29-Aug. 2, is for ages 13-18. That one's limited to 35 campers.
   The fee for each camp is $300. Sessions run from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. every day, and there's a performance at the end of each camp.
   Hall Associates Flying Effects is a nationally recognized company that has created theatrical flying effects for everything from high school productions to major Broadway shows.
   To enroll, call the Manatee Players ticket office at 941-748-5875. Questions about the camp should be directed to Rick Kerby at 941-748-0111.
   The Manatee Performing Arts Center isat 502 Third Ave. W., Bradenton.
