What is your favorite apparatus(es)?

How did you get interested in aerial arts?
Originally I went to a bachelorette party back in 2010 for pole dancing and started taking classes. The studio also had aerial classes and after a couple months decided to take silks. I loved it and it made much more sense to my body than pole, so I kept with it and love it still to this day.

What do you love about aerial arts?
One of the things I appreciate most about Aerial is how it combines skills to make me well rounded in life. I need to be strong and flexible. I need to be brave and vulnerable. I need to learn to climb and fall. I need to train basics and innovate new things. Aerial is an activity that has taught me more about balance than anything else in life!

What are you currently working on?
I feel like Iā€™m always working on everything. The more I learn, the more I realize I must improve. There is always room to grow.
