Indoor Kite Flying
About Indoor Kite Flying
Modern kites are lightweight and extremely efficient to the point where large kites can be flown indoors at walking speed. Coupled with music and precise flying techniques, this becomes a fascinating show of accuracy and tricks that takes performance art to new heights. Glenn has flown indoor performances in local schools and as far away as Taipei, Taiwan.

Air & Space Museum in Washington, DC
Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, PA
Kites on Ice in Madison, WI
Taiwan schools and Taiwan City Hall in Taipei, Taiwan
