Philosophy

"Technique makes you safe, authenticity makes you memorable" 

A solid foundation gives you the ability to discover your own path. The goal of Emily's teaching is to give each individual an understanding of aerial theory, the strength and body awareness to execute skills with solid technique and the confidence to continually grow. All with the goal of creating artists who can make this art form a true expression of themselves. Every class is integrated with opportunities to gain further understanding through exploration.

Individuality goes beyond personality, every brain and body is unique. Emily strives to create a learning environment that enables everyone to feel safe, heard and empowered.

“Emily is a fantastic teacher. Her classes are safe spaces in all the sense of the term. Her holistic approach of the art form she teaches allow her students to evolve not only on the technical level, but also as well-balanced artist and/or performers. She makes sure to focus on each student strengths while also ensuring that they also improve their weaknesses. I had the chance to have both group and private lessons with this amazing person, and I know I am a better artist thanks to her!

To anyone looking to for a great teacher of aerial arts, no matter if you are completely new to this or an advanced aerialist, I would highly recommend!”

Intro to Aerial Fabrics
