We are about real human flight harnessing the power of the wind to fly and dance with the sound of music. The magic is experienced by both the performers who feel the wind’s power and the audience who sees the synchronicity with the music.
Indoor Sky Dancing is the art of choreographed flying to music inside a wind tunnel. As a new performing art, the possibilities to create and grow are just now budding.
We aim to develop this new performing art form in many directions:
- Innovation and development of artistic flight (solo, duet & group)
- Inspiration of new generations of flyers (people who would love to fly!)
- Promotion of Performances in Competitions & Exhibitions
- Promotion to the outside world (non skydivers)
- Creation of new opportunities for the sport
Values of Indoor Wind Dancing:
- Innovation, pursuit of new creative ideas that have the potential to change our world.
- Creativity that Inspires
- Athletic Prowess
- Joy for the feeling of free human flight, creativity and open-mindedness.

“The ‘heart’ of freestyle is about exploring complete freedom of creativity in freefall, and each person will have their own style of expression. By developing artistic indoor flying choreographed to music, Lise is an innovator advancing the creative elements of artistic flying to a whole new level with new possibilities of expression. It is yet another example of pioneering in creative flying … it can have many possibilities in both competitions and public performances.”
Freestyle skydiving pioneer from the mid-1980s
“I think it’s great. It brings a new dimension that we don’t have outdoors. We should take advantage of the fact we are in an indoor environment. By seeing a performance with music, it will make it media friendly because it will make it easier for the general public to enjoy and understand what the flyers are doing. I think this is the way we should go now.”
Executive Director of the FAI
“We saw the excitement from the audience when Lise was performing with the music. At the end of the competition, the tunnel put some music for all competitors but is not the same effect because the other flyers are not hearing the music so they weren’t synchronized with what the audience was hearing but even then, the atmosphere was great.”

“This is really the next level of complexity in flight and the main thing is the total interest in developing oneself both as a flyer and as a dancer. The artistic disciplines in the tunnel and skydiving will develop in this direction.”

“The wind tunnel represents a great opportunity for the general public. Thanks to this tool, everyone can experience the joy of the human flight without risk. Indoor Sky Dancing, according to us, will open up the sport to all ages. The very visual aspect and the music will contribute to make this sport becoming increasingly popular. More than any other emerging discipline, Indoor Sky Dancing will help to democratize the wind tunnel. With crossroads between air and sport, Indoor Sky Dancing” has beautiful days in front of it and Lise is a pioneer in this field! At Weembi, we will help her to develop this project.”
