In 2010, Hannah began teaching private lessons, in a small village, working man’s club. Over the years, with the help from Hannah’s sister and instructor Kerry, classes grew in size and we hopped venues striving for better. It was Hannah’s ultimate dream to have a studio where her instructors and students could feel a sense of community, feel safe and have the facilities to grow in talent. After years of working the day time job school teaching and teaching pole classes in the evening, plus competition training here and there, an opportunity came to think about our own studio. It took 3 years to find something that was worthy of the gamble. With a fantastic growing team behind Hannah, we finally opened Aerial Arts Studio in 2019. To some it’s just an aerial and pole studio, to the instructors and members here it’s incredibly special and offers everything we’ve always wanted as a team.
Sometimes things are worth fighting for!
Instructors and students enjoy Aerial Silks, Aerial Hoop and Pole Fitness. We have over 30 children learning aerial with us now . We’re extremely proud of each and every member.
The support on a financial and moral level during lockdown has been overwhelming. Many members chose to continue paying memberships, while others supported by staying on hold. Instructors offered their free time to teach online classes. The message of courage and support has been exemplary to the girls and their attitude towards their community.
The studio is still young and we have far to go, we can’t wait to see what adventures will take place their, the journeys it will see and the opportunities it will create.
Please see images attached. For an idea of where the journey started, I’ve added some photos of 2010, they ‘ need referencing
