Joshua Dean, Aerialist

Joshua Dean is an aerialist… which would make any person interesting!!! You can not only take a class from him at the Trapeze School New York, but you can watch him perform with his company Suspended Cirque . He is Amazing and Beautiful to watch!! And if you take his class, his positive energy motivates and inspires (he will even take a kick or two in the face from beginning students, without getting mad). Oh and his socks never match, which makes you wonder if it is always a coincidence or on purpose.. interesting none the less.
