My name is Jessica Shaw and my life has been guided by a thirst for the challenging, being active, and the arts. The aerial arts allow me to combine my passions and I love to share these experiences with others through teaching and performing. After I took my first silks class in the summer of 2016 I knew that I had finally found my true passion in life! I am a certified aerial instructor who enjoys assisting students in advancing their aerial skills and reaching their strength and flexibility goals regardless of their age or starting fitness level. I have been dedicated to learning everything I can about the art of aerials while attempting to inspire as many people as possible along the way. For any students that want a little extra attention, I am also available through Total 180 to coach private lessons for beginner to intermediates looking to build the strength and endurance needed to excel to the next level of their aerial practice through proper conditioning exercises and a more of a form focused session. Stop in for open gym with me and practice skill you have learned in previous classes to help log them in your muscle memory bank! Hope to see you all in the sky!
