Amanda Box, Greenville, SC, USA

I’ve taken four PDM teacher trainings. After the first two, I opened Aerial Ambition, an aerial silks & lyra training company. Each class I progressed as an aerialist from all of the feedback on the required skills. More importantly, I learned how to structure a class for both children and adults, how to break down and modify moves to make aerials approachable for everyone, and how to push both myself and my students theatrically to express feeling and emotions through performance. Our aerial business has exploded, no doubt, due in part to the incredible training that we received from PDM.
