I've been going to Vertical Fix for 2 years now and can't imagine a better place to spend my time. The whole community is so friendly and welcoming. I can honestly say it feels like a second home to me now. As someone who has taken over 6 different classes here, I can confidently say you'll have so much fun no matter what class you're interested in.
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.
