Ariadna Vendelova lives in Košice, Slovakia. She is an aerialist, choreographer, dancer and yoga teacher, focused mainly on aerial silks and aerial hoop. She works, creates and performs at various events and productions together with her aerial dance companies LA LYRA and ARIADNINA NIŤ, cooperating with dancers, musicians, theater groups, photographers...
Her approach to movement in aerial arts is greatly influenced by yoga, dance improvisation and nature. In her aerial sessions she either likes to go into very clean, technical practice which brings deep awareness, clarity and fluidity of movement, but she also very much enjoys to search for one´s authentic self, exploring one´s natural ways of moving, and bringing dance and expression into aerial acrobatics.
Her personal focus is on movement quality, fluidity, breathing principles, movement awareness, works of spine and joints, use of spirals, expansions and contractions in movement, etc.. Ariadna has been teaching regular classes and workshops for several years. She is happy to share with fellow aerialists the passion for going deep into movement essentials and connecting with oneself though aerial dance.
Her greatest inspiration in aerial dance has been the teaching and approach of Ana Prada.
She was a finalist of U.S. Aerial Championships (NYC, USA) in 2016 (silks), and placed 1st and 3rd at Aerial Acrobatics Championships in Budapest (Hungary) in 2016 (hoop, silks).
