Sara Kaiser founded Wakeful Ascent Aerial Arts in June 2018 to share her love for aerial arts with the communities of the Eastern Sierra. Sara began training aerial silks and lyra in Santa Cruz in 2015. She is delighted to see how aerial arts can bring people together and spark creativity.
Sara strives to nurture a healthy culture around this powerful activity. She encourages inclusivity, patience, playfulness, and camaraderie in her classes.
Sara takes a methodical and logical approach to teaching the art and discipline of aerial silks, guiding students through foundational skills and gradually building up to more complex and challenging tricks and poses. She establishes strict guidelines for safe skill-building and sets the tone for a welcoming, inclusive, and playful atmosphere.
Sara has most recently added dance trapeze to her training and is actively working on an aerial production that she very much looks forward to sharing with the local community.
