SARA KAISER - Owner of Wakeful Ascent Aerial Arts
I'm Sara, founder of Wakeful Ascent Aerial Arts. I found my way to aerial in 2015 and never looked back. I am absolutely 100% in love with aerial. I love the way it feels, I love the challenges, I love the brain puzzles, and I love it as an outlet for expression. As a performer, communicating human experience and story-telling are central to my work.
Teaching is part of the heart and soul of my aerial practice. Working with students brings me joy and purpose. I see every class as an opportunity to connect with students and grow as an individual.
I take a methodical and logical approach to teaching the art and discipline of aerial silks, guiding students through foundational skills and gradually building up through progressions to more complex and challenging tricks and poses. I include technique and theory in my curricula because I want to empower aerialists with the "how" and "why" of aerial movement instead of just telling them what to do.
I offer clear guidelines for safe skill-building and make an effort to create a welcoming, inclusive, and playful atmosphere in the classroom. Above all, I love to see how aerial arts can bring people together and spark creativity. My aerial family means the world to me and I can't imagine life without them!
