I teach aerial circus arts at sparrow studios in Olympia, WA, and occasionally at Airbound Arts in Olympia. I have been teaching since 2016, my students describe me as precise, encouraging, fun, safe, and inspiring, with particular attention to quality of movement and form. I have taught beginning to intermediate level students, and workshops on aerial silks, sling, and hoop (lyra), and train on silks, hoop, rope, trapeze, sling, and lyra.

I had a blast in you class & really appreciated doing something outside of work and family. Good reminder to do things just for me! It was also really fun to watch the others build their strength & skill over the course of the session. I attribute all of that to you— you’re an awesome instructor: great cuing, patience, demonstrations & you inspire confidence. - Intro to Aerial student, February 2020
..I am pining to be once again immersed in that community of strong, dedicated, creative, inspiring human beings. Thank you for being encouraging & inspiring, I feel deeply blessed to have had an opportunity to learn from you & feel motivated to push myself even more! -- Continuing Beginner student, May 2020
I started training in 2011 in olympia, moved to Chicago in 2012 where I trained at Aloft Circus Arts (coaches included leah leor (straps, handstands), kasumi kato (silks, act development), and dana dugan (trapeze)). in 2017 I moved back to olympia and started teaching alongside sara sparrow at sparrow studios. I am most excited about on aerial silks, but have trained on trapeze, lyra, rope, straps, and sling, and have basic proficiency with handstands and juggling.
