Versatile Arts is now New Moon Movement Arts! Go to New Moon

About Versatile Arts

Versatile Arts was established in early 2007 as Seattle’s first full-time school dedicated to aerial arts for adults. Starting out in a shared studio with a dozen students, VA quickly outgrew that space and moved into our own facility in August of 2008. On Jan 1, 2024, the studio part of Versatile Arts become New Moon Movement Arts so that Bev could retire from studio ownership. Versatile Arts still produces shows and supports VAMP, the software platform Bev developed and offers to other studios.

In her previous life, she spent 20 years as a software developer, and has developed VAMP, a studio management and skill tracking system for use in the circus industry.
