The Aerial Annex

The Aerial Annex

The Aerial Annex is Muncie, Indiana’s only aerial silks studio.  Aerial Silks combine dance, acrobats and flexibility while moving gracefully through the air. This decades old form of circus performance is quickly becoming more popular across the US as it is becoming widely accessible to larger areas of our population.

​We are excited to bring this creative and artistic form of movement to the Muncie area and be able to spread our enthusiasm for the sport with many others!

The only aerial arts studio in Muncie.
We have classes for all levels from beginner all the way through advance. We also have youth classes available for ages 9-14.
Everyone, other than those attending the youth classes, are required to complete an “Intro to Aerial” class before moving on to Level 1 Silks.
We are located inside of the MadJax building, downtown Muncie. You may enter through the south door of the building.

Pawnee, IN…the real Muncie?

Pawnee, IN…the real Muncie?

Pawnee, Indiana is the fictional setting for the TV show, Parks and Recreation. Parks and Recreation premiered on NBC in 2009 and ran for 7 seasons with 124 episodes.  The show follows the adventures of the local parks and recreation department employees, led by Deputy Director Leslie Knope (played by Saturday Night Live alum, Amy Poehler). “Muncie is a lovely city.” – Leslie Knope

There are a lot of people that think Pawnee is based off of real cities of Indiana. In the TV show, the city is said to be located about 95 miles south of Indianapolis and 120 miles southeast of Terre Haute with a combined population of 80,000 people. The map of Pawnee is actually a map of Muncie, but turned upside down and flipped. The show even modeled Pawnee’s city government after that of Muncie and Bloomington, IN.

In Parks and Recreation, Pawnee has a city slogan of “First in Friendship, Fourth in Obesity”. Fourth in obesity as in the entire country. One of the local factories employs one-third of the city, the Sweetums Candy Factory. The most popular restaurant in Pawnee is Paunch Burger. In the “Soda Tax” episode, they introduced a 512-ounce drink called  “child size” because it was roughly the size of a liquified child.

There may not be 512-ounce sodas in Muncie, but the two communities do have some things in common. This is not the first time Muncie has been modeled as a typical midwestern town. It was featured in sociological studies, in movies, cartoons, and other pop culture.

Jerry/Larry/Garry Gergich, a character on the show, loves his favorite vacation spot…Muncie, were he and his family has a timeshare.
