Took my first class at SOUL last night with Kiera, Soul Pole After Dark and could not have had a better time! I've taken pole classes in the past, I prefer actual dance classes than ones that are focused on tricks (though I plan on taking an Intro to Pole class ASAP!). Some places I've been seem a little more exclusive and it's hard to connect with classmates and the instructor which is something that's very important for me in such an intimate setting where you really need to be comfortable. Kiera and the other members of the class couldn't have been more welcoming and Flynn made sure to tell me about the studio and show me around to get me well acquainted. I hope to become a regular at SOUL and am so glad I finally signed up for a class. Looking forward to more!!!
Gabriella first stepped foot on a stage at the young age of three,
and hasn't been able to shake performing since. She spent the first
20 years of her life dedicating her time and energy to all forms of
dance. She has trained and studied ballet, tap, jazz, modern,
contemporary, ballroom, and acrobatics. She
continued her education at The Evergreen State College and received
a Bachelor's of Arts in Dance and Movement
It wasn't until she was 21 years old when she discovered circus arts. She began training on fabric, corde lisse, and static trapeze at The Aviary in Olympia, WA under Sara Sparrow. Then she went on to perform a couple of shows with The Cabiri in Seattle, WA and now performs with Host of Sparrows Aerial Circus in Richmond, VA. She has developed a deep love for the trapeze, and she focuses most of her energy into that apparatus, admired by how free and how much room the trapeze allowed for creative expression. She pursues circus arts with a desire to create, stimulate ideas, and to always push the limit.
