I was slightly hesitant to do the Intro to Aerials class because of the recent pandemic. However, everything was disinfected thoroughly and very organized. The class itself was fantastic. I had stopped figure skating a year back because of a discouraging coach and an injury. I was nervous because I was always harshly scolded whenever I messed up, but Ms. Luna was very kind and patient with me. She made me feel less self-conscious and encouraged me and the other student throughout the class. I would've definitely regretted it if I didn't attend the class!

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.
