Incredible. Accessible. Affordable.


When I was first introduced to aerial silks, I couldn’t pull myself up off the ground, but I was instantly hooked. It blew my mind that mere mortals like myself, with no circus experience and only a little movement training, could actually do this stuff!

The only option for taking classes was too far away and too expensive for my broke undergrad self to justify, so I started teaching myself from books and YouTube videos. I would “hang out” with friends who were also trying to teach themselves, and we would rig from trees and playground structures (BAD IDEA!).

In short, the only reason I didn’t break anything was mostly a whole lot of good luck.

In 2013 I opened Ringstar Studio and started teaching classes. To be completely honest, I never expected to be running an aerial and movement arts studio, so I didn’t exactly have a plan, but I knew from day one that I was going to make sure that money would not be the same barrier for my students that it was for me.

Ringstar has now offered instruction to thousands of clients, and I’ve had the honor of helping them discover that they can do incredible things. Aerial and movement arts are more than just exercise (although that’s a huge benefit)- they’re a way of experiencing how strong and how capable you really are. Every class is a combination of embracing fresh challenges and celebrating your successes.

Whether you’re looking for some quality time for yourself, or ready to take the next step in your fitness journey, we’re ready to support and empower you!
