  • Offering artistic / choreographic feedback to other students, or helping to spot IS acceptable, but teaching new moves is NOT!
  • Mats must be used at all times
  • Stay off the gymnastics equipment
  • If you need a spotter, just ask!

Upcoming Workshops

Flexibility for Aerialists

Mon, Nov 10th, 7:00-8:30 PM at ATG
Instructor:Heather Poole
Assistant:Waverly Jones
All Levels Welcome!

To be flexible is to be capable of moving in many different ways without injury or damage to the body. Although some people have a natural flexibility, becoming flexible and maintaining it takes training just like all other physical activities that require practice. Some of the major benefits to flexibility training are improved physical performance, reduction of muscle soreness, improved posture, increased circulation, and improved muscle coordination. In this class series we will work on improving flexibility and strength in the body from head to toe. Bring a yoga mat and strap if you have them.

Beginner Lyra

Mon, Nov 10th, 8:30-10:00 PM at ATG
Instructor:Waverly Jones
Assistant:Heather Poole
All Levels Welcome!

Students will learn lyra (also known as aerial hoop) fundamentals, and will leave this workshop knowing a foundational sequence on which to build upon.

Take both workshops for $75!

People and places that have provided Heather with the most growth over the years include: Joe Taft, Betsy Shuttleworth, Ember Bria, Rebecca Starr, Ana Prada, and Body&Pole NYC. She currently resides in Asheville, North Carolina where she is a professional performing artist with Asheville Aerial Arts and Bromelia Aerial Dance Collective. Heather teaches both children's and adult aerial and flexibility classes at Aerial Space in West Asheville, NC and through Asheville Aerial Arts. Some of her favorite ways to spend her time are training Aerial Contortion on Silks, group work and creating unique and interesting performance art, ongoing learning about rigging of all types, and consuming lots of decadent dark chocolate.

Waverly Jones is a multi-talented aerial artist based in Asheville, NC. She specializes in several aerial apparatuses, including aerial fabrics, aerial hoop, static trapeze, Spanish web, and pole fitness. In January 2011, she became a member of Asheville Aerial Arts, and has performed at many different events including festivals, galas, fund raisers, carnivals, concerts, and private events.

Aside from performing and training, Waverly is passionate about teaching aerial arts at Aerial Space, located in West Asheville, and Warren Wilson College, located in Swannanoa, NC. Waverly aspires to become certified in teaching aerial arts, and to reach out to others through performance and instruction.
