Andrea was hooked on aerials from her very first class at Firefly Circus and Theatre in Edmonton, Alberta in 2011. Starting from barely being able to dangle from her knees on the trapeze, to learning big tricks twenty feet in the air, it’s been a love affair, only slightly marred by bruises in interesting places. After training for two years in Edmonton, Andrea continued her practice at Esh Aerial Arts in Somerville, Massachusetts, where she learned exciting moves like the death defying ‘Big Russian Slack Drop,’ and ‘The Blender'. Andrea has attended aerial workshops and instructor training sessions at the New England Centre for Circus Arts (NECCA), in Brattleboro, Vermont.
Want that aerial invert or pull-over? Want to be able to climb to the top of the silks? Or maybe you just want to look more confident and smooth in the air? This class focuses on the conditioning required to achieve your goals, using both silks and hoop. Please note, this class is about increasing your strength and stamina, not learning new skills or tricks on the apparatuses.
