Shelley – Instructor
Shelley’s passion for movement started when she was young when her mother enrolled herself and her younger sister in dance classes. This began a 14 year journey of learning, performing – and loving – jazz & tap. After a hiatus from movement where she was working and travelling, she found aerials and never looked back! For the last four years she has trained mainly in Lyra and Trapeze and has competed in Halloween Heaven 2019 on Lyra and performed at the Australian Circus Festival in 2019 as part of a group act on Pentagram. Shelley is excited to join the Aerial Enchantment team and share her love of Aerials with wonderful students!
