About the Instructors:

AirAligned started in 2002 with support from The Center for the Arts. AirAligned’s Advanced programs are now being offered throughout the US and Internationally. AirAligned has a solid reputation in the industry and through that is able to provide many opportunities for professional performers, workshop goers as well as dance organizations. Because AirAligned focuses on aerial movement as a professional performance art, we are recognized by the state of California through Warehouse Artist Lofts in the growing Historic R Street District of Sacramento under the direction of Tresa Honaker who is a full time resident at WAL. All of our instructors and presenters are professional aerialists and dancers trained in multiple disciplines and injury prevention.
