Rain is one of the hardest working aerialists I know. As an instructor, her advanced technical skill set is well matched by her verbal ability to communicate effectively to students. Her knowledge of raw skills combined with her awareness of anatomy and injury prevention helped me learn on several levels. Her class taught me advanced skills but also refined the subtleties involved in presenting performance, moving efficiently for optimal safety, and I also usually learned a lot about teaching. Rain cracks the whip with a velvet glove, she makes her students work hard and they thank her for it. I look forward to taking class with Rain as much as I do co-teaching with her. She’s not only excellent at her job but fun and easy to work with. She has a lot to offer a beginning student as well as a professional performer.
