Kim (she/her) stepped off the ground in 2012 and has never looked back. With a background in Pilates, she brings her knowledge of body mechanics and movement pathways to her teaching, helping students to find success in their aerial endeavors.  Her classes emphasize theory and technique, grounding students in proper mechanics while also teaching artistry and creative choreography. She offers keys to unlocking what can feel impossible and provides students with tools to build consistency and reliability in their aerial skills.  Specializing in silks, rope, and sling, Kim is a sought-after instructor having worked for VA, Apex Aerial Arts, Arcadia and the Bellingham Circus Guild.
