NINA CHARITY, Artistic Director of Baltimore Aerial Dance (BAD) and RAW Baltimore's Performing Artist of 2012, grew up as a competitive Figure Skater in Columbia, Md, due to the nature of the sport she was required to take dance classes to better her grace and athleticism. Soon after she enrolled in the University of Maryland Dance program where she obtained a BA in Dance. After graduation to continue dancing she discovered the art of Aerial Dance. By working with Air Dance Bernasconi for a little over 6 years, under the direction of Jayne Bernasconi, she was able to explore the ability to fly through the air gracefully. Her training and performance experiences include the Aerial Dance Festival in Boulder, CO where she performed along side of Elsie and Serenity Smith, Nancy Smith, & Fred Deb. For little over a year now she has been directing Aerial classes and Performances as the Artistic Director of Baltimore Aerial Dance, this program took over the former classes taught by Jayne Bernasconi. Along with her teaching endeavor at Coppermine Field House, she completed her work with a program that supports Michelle Obama's obesity initiative, in which she performs her Aerial Fabric Act for elementary school age children in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. On the time she isn't flying through the air, she is employed by The Baltimore County Department of Aging where she trains and teaching Senior Citizens how to effectively and safely exercise at 11 different Baltimore County Senior Fitness Centers.
