I have been doing aerial silks for the last 4 years in Christchurch at Circotica. I recently moved up to Tauranga and have made “The Studio” my new silks home.
For me aerial silks is an amazing way of building strength and flexibility without really feeling like I’m exercising. The challenge of learning a new move or drop teamed with the excitement of the next performance or fabulous costume drove me to train more and more and before I knew it I was the strongest I’d ever been.
As well as being a great form of exercise most people will agree that silks is a beautiful performance art. I’ve been lucky enough to perform in a variety of settings and it has been an awesome way to boost my confidence and make heaps of amazing friends.
I look forward to sharing my love of silks and circus arts with my students.
