Caitlin founded Chrysalis Aerial Academy in October 2016 and teaches aerial silks and lyra four days per week. She has over five years of aerial arts experience as well as a background in performance, movement and theater.
When Caitlin is not at the studio you can find her working with animals, doing art projects, enjoying live music and exploring the outdoors.
Caitlin wanted to try aerial arts after seeing a silks performer at a circus when she was a kid. As an adult she finally had the opportunity to take a class. She was hooked. Despite being athletic, she did not find exercising enjoyable until trying aerial arts.
Her advice to people who want to try circus arts is to stop making excuses and show up! You get strong by taking classes, you don't need to be strong before you get here! Set your ego aside and just enjoy the ride.
