I did my first Aerial Silks level 1 class last night with Gabrielle and it was AMAZING! The warm up alone was so filled with so much energy yet it was so fun. I do Lyra, Aerial Yoga and just started Static Trapeze and have always wanted the chance to try traditional Silks but have never had the chance until now. This studio is so CLEAN! First and foremost. Through these times, going to aerial facilities or gyms can be questionable to some, but they really make sure to keep a high level of sanitation everywhere. The instructor was fantastic and worked with everyone individually and as a whole, if they were at different levels she rolled with it and didnt let it mess anyone else up and I loved that. The owner is the sweetest and I would definitely recommend this facility. I can not wait to keep going with Silks!
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.
