Susan Murphy, a former dance major from south Georgia, founded Canopy Studio, an aerial arts performance center located in north Athens, in 2002 after she got exposure to single point trapeze. Their mission is to create opportunities for their students to perform while sharing the power of circus arts to anyone who’s interested and willing to try it out. They have some performers who have been there since it opened 18 years ago. They currently train over 600 students in 75 classes per week.
