Laura Pence

Owner, Aerial Silks, Aerial Yoga, and Chandelyra Instructor
Certified personal trainer, National Academy of Sports Medicine

Fifteen years of power yoga were the perfect prelude to aerials for Laura, who eagerly launched her strength and flexibility off of the yoga mat and into the air. She has trained, taught, and performed from coast to coast, from L.A. to Philadelphia.

Laura loves to share the thrill of flying and builds her classes around flow and endurance. One of her passions is synthesizing vinyasa flow, power yoga, and silks into a seamless, high-intensity workout. She dares you to try it!

Andi Strackeljahn

Aerial Silks Instructor

Trained in French ballet as a child, dance was Andi’s first love but after an introduction to aerial silks during graduate school, silks quickly become her passion. The thrill of defying gravity and pushing the limits of what the body is capable of fuel her never-ending curiosity and adoration of circus arts. Andi has been performing on aerial silks and hammock since 2016. Most recently, she performed ambient aerials at Indy 500 events in 2023 and 2024. 

In 2024, Andi completed Paper Doll Militia’s Level 1 Silks Instructor training. Andi infuses artistic expression and play into her teaching. She finds great joy in guiding new aerialists into an aerial practice that honors their body and life experiences.

Senora Loop

Aerial Silks and Aerial Hoop Instructor

Senora is a compassionate, energetic teacher and performer with a background in therapeutic exploration as well as ample experience working with children and animals. She most passionately believes in having students ponder and reevaluate the concept of “possible” with the hope that aerial training will teach students to defy pessimistic and “grounded” mentalities. Senora strongly advocates the use of fitness and aerial training for improving physical and mental well-being.

Senora has trained locally as well as with world-renowned aerial duo, Womack and Bowman, in California. This siren has stunned in several performances, such as the Aerialogy Winter Showcase, Indy 500 Snake Pit After Party, Pride Summerfest 2016-2019, and Lotus World Music and Arts Festival 2016.
