What is your favorite apparatus(es)?
That’s hard to answer! Probably silks, but trapeze is very close behind, as well as lyra.
How did you get interested in aerial arts?
How I became interested was seeing a troupe from NYC perform both silks and lyra at Burning Man in 2008, hanging form a 60 ft dome. I especially was mesmerized by the red silks, there were 5 performers in sync, and I immediately knew that I wanted to do that! This actually led to the beginnings of AAofU, because when Annie and I came back to SLC we took lessons for a year with Julianna Hane at Revolve Aerial Dance, and then agreed to take over the business when she moved away after a year.
What do you love about aerial arts?
Its beautiful, athletic, skillful, creative, liberating and FUN!
