I decided to make a Directory of Aerial and Ground and Flow Arts (shortened toDAGFA) to learn the basics of ruby on rails.

The main attraction of the site is a map of the United States with pins showing Aerials studios across the country. Clicking on a pin opens up an info box with images showing the types of classes offered, the location of the studio, and email contact. Clicking on the name of the studio brings you to their profile page, which shows more information, including classes offered and social media.

When I have time to update the site, I would like to change the design to better reflect the needs of the community. I doubt that studios will want to input their classes when they already have their own dedicated system of doing so. I would like to be able to have a map showing workshops and performances rather than just studio spaces. I would also love to have a forum so that this is not just a resource for people interested in starting aerials or finding a new studio but also a community space.
