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.
