Having never done any type of Acro before, it was such a fun adventure to try it out with my boyfriend. Jen and David were so knowledgeable and walked the room well, working with complete newbies like us while also challenging the experienced groups as well. I would highly recommended Vertical Fix to anyone who is interested, no matter what skill level you are at!
Brent and Alisha are a circus artist duo named “Edge Acrobatics” who specialize in dynamic partner acrobatics. Since establishing their partnership in 2014, they have trained with and learned from some of the best acrobats in the world. They currently reside in Phoenix but escape the heat training at the San Diego Circus Center under renown teacher Jean-Luc Martin. Dabbling in anything they can from tramp wall to duo trapeze, their primary focus is in hand balancing and hand-to-hand.
Alisha’s love for acrobatics started at a young age as a competitive gymnast and eventually a collegiate cheerleader on her University’s all-girl and co-ed team. After graduating with a degree in Commercial Recreation and Event Management, Alisha kept her movement background up with rock climbing, yoga, and acro. It wasn’t until she met Brent that she decided to escape the 80-hour work week to train, perform, and teach full time. She currently is a USAG certified gymnastics coach and co-owns Edge Acrobatics teaching tumbling, handstands, and acro.
Brent has been teaching and sharing his passion for movement for the majority of his life. Starting his love for movement with countless hours spent at his martial arts studio and even teaching martial arts at a very young age. He moved his focus to rock climbing and began to coach the Rock Phenoms, a competitive youth team, for the past 5 years. Alongside coaching, Brent runs Edge Acrobatics teaching and performing acro around the valley.
Edge Acrobatics currently teaches and performs around the valley and loves sharing the discipline of acro and hand balancing through workshops, events, and private lessons.
