static trapeze, pole, silks, corde lisse, hammock, lyra, contemporary dance
After growing up practicing a variety of dance styles and having a strong background in tumbling and group stunting (flyer), Jes found the perfect blend of her favorite part from each of those things when she began training on static trapeze in 2020. Since then, Jes has continued to add new apparatuses wherever they could fit. Trapeze has continued to be her main apparatus, but Jes also trains in pole, silks, and rope, along with the recent additions of hammock and lyra. From her experience with dance, Jes held onto her love for contemporary dance in particular, and loves taking any opportunity to incorporate the style into aerial arts.
As an instructor and administrative assistant at Momentum Aerial Arts in Flagstaff, AZ, she has had the opportunity to continue seeking opportunities that will contribute to her success as an aerialist. This includes completing Paper Doll Militia’s Level 1 Teacher Training for both Trapeze and Silks, along with attending the upcoming American Circus Educators Conference (with administrative experience in both organizations, through being accepted to their work trade programs.
