Holly started training at Aerial Enchantment in 2019 where she also developed a love for hammock. She has a passion for helping others to become stronger on the apparatus and achieve their aerial goals.


Laura began her aerials journey in 2018 as one of Aerial Enchantment’s first hammock students. After a few years of hard work, and falling in love with trapeze, she is now one of our instructors! She loves introducing students of all ages and abilities to aerials. When not hanging upside down, she can usually be found cuddling her beloved cat, Stormy.


Grace found her passion for aerials 5 years ago when she was looking for a new fitness challenge after 12 years of netball. She has focused mostly on hammock and silk but has also trained in trapeze and Lyra. Grace is a keen foodie and enjoys having a laugh. She is excited to join the Aerial Enchantment team and hopes to bring plenty of laughs to her students. 


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!


Rachel is a certified personal trainer, with a certificate 3 & 4 in fitness. Rachel enjoys helping people find their love for fitness and celebrating small accomplishments as it’s not the destination that’s important, it’s the journey! She started her aerial journey 3 years ago, training in hammock, lyra, silks and trapeze. She has been lucky enough to have performed at the Australian Circus Festival. Rachel’s stage name is Mononoke after the cartoon character because she loves anime!
