Amanda has been practicing aerial for four years, starting with silks. After moving to Madison three years ago she discovered other types of aerials, including lyra, rope, and trapeze. She started teaching this year and is excited to expand her teaching practice! Amanda has done Nimble Arts teacher training and is in the process of completing Born to Fly’s silks teacher certification.
Stephanie teaches aerial silks and sling. Stephanie has been aerial dancing since 2008, beginning with Wild Rumpus Circus and Cycropia Aerial Dance. Stephanie expanded from trapeze into silks, rings, flying pole, rope, and sling. Beyond a love of flying, Stephanie found that circus offers a warm, supportive community that lifts up all its members. With day-jobs in arts administration and public health, Stephanie is also very concerned with building community relationships, so that no one with a love of death-defying feats ever has to be turned away. Stephanie has trained with Nimble Arts Teacher Training program and Born to Fly and is completing a teaching certificate. Find out more at Swing State Aerial.
