My goal is to make sure that every student reaches their own personal potential and perhaps achieve things they never thought possible.
I structure my classes to make sure everyone is having fun but at the same time learning essential conditioning exercises that will help them perform the moves I teach.
I'm also a little nutty and a bit of a fitness guru so get ready to work hard and have fun!
I trained as a professional dancer before moving on to learn Aerial Acrobatics.
I have many dance teaching qualifications, with this knowledge about the body and how to structure a class it really blends well with my Aerial knowledge.
I'm also a trained Magicians Assitant but that's a secret!
