Frieda has danced all her life, learning to teach and choreograph from many mentors. Through her dance journey, she learned that the body can accomplish amazing things through movement. In 2012, she was introduced to aerial silks via a theatrical production. Performing on the silks felt nothing like she has ever experienced. In 2015, Frieda started teaching silks to kids and in 2016, adults. Her aerial journey has brought more knowledge and awareness of her body than she has ever known. Learning and teaching silks is a seriously fun challenge. It is much more than tricks and feats of strength. It teaches you to try new things. Things that will take you out of your comfort zone. You might fail. You might get back up and try again and be stronger than you were. You will even explore your limits, be vulnerable and even feel silly at times. Frieda can't wait to guide her students through this remarkable exploration.

It was love at first sight in 2018 when Brady first found the fabrics. Ever since, he has pursued his passion in the air with friends, family, fellow performers, and anyone willing to spread their aerial wings! Specializing in silks and hammock, Brady has enjoyed performing on all sorts of apparatuses both solo and duo: Lyra, Cube, Double Hammock, and more! Acquiring his Silks Instructor Certification through Aerial Physique in 2020 served as the catalyst for his true passion in life… Teaching! Brady’s teaching experience extends beyond the aerial world, having operated as a 4th Degree Black Belt Head Instructor for 6 years and Accounting Tutor at Texas A&M University for 2 years. His #1 goal is to empower his students to believe and achieve, utilizing their aerial accomplishments as a source of confidence in all of life’s endeavors.
