About the Studio
Spokane Aerial Performance Arts opened in September of 2011 (Sept 11, 2011 performance shown above). Hoping to teach a few friends some aerial silks, the first ever class opened with a bang, 41 students. Before anyone knew it Spokane Aerial had 189 students and a monthly gig at a popular restaurant. Over the past decade, Spokane Aerial has performed between 30 and 35 times per year in the Greater Spokane Area for private parties, corporate events, community festivals and self-produced shows. With new and growing aerial programs, Spokane Aerial Performance Arts has scheduled their next big production for Spring 2025.

Meet Our Founder

"At the age of 12, while sitting in my first ever health education class, I decided all I ever wanted to be was healthy. Finishing college with a degree in Health Education, I began my life-long quest of health, fitness and (surprisingly) performance."
