I know how exciting – and intimidating – starting aerial dance can be. Seeing small successes during class has shown you that maybe this is possible, but all you ever see are crazy tricks on Instagram from pros or scary rants from aerialists about how unsafe people are.
This site is for people who have just started on their own aerial journey, and who might still be shaking in the ropes. I like showing people how accessible aerial is, and how small, consistent actions will get you far.
This site is not for learning new tricks though! Those rants from experienced aerialists? More often than not, they’re right. Learning dangerous tricks online isn’t smart. So I am very sorry if you’re looking for that, but you won’t find it here. I can, however, offer training tips and advice to use at home to seriously help advance faster.
I’ve always loved performing. I cheered for fun and competitively for 10 years, dabbled in theater, took boxing classes and started exploring hip hop dance before a coworker convinced me to try an aerial silks class. I was hooked after my first class, practicing the new knots on bedsheets when I wasn’t at the studio. A few months later I took a trapeze workshop and fell in love all over. Four years later, I perform silks and trapeze with Lucia’s Performance Company and love teaching and helping others learn what they are capable of through aerial arts.
