Knowledge explosions in so many forms! Learn every minute detail of aerial technique and physics in my lecture courses! Turn your training completely upside down (rightside up?) by taking my lab courses, or work with me one on one in a private lesson!


It’s edu-tainment!
 Learn how to get your trapeze to stop trying to keep your skin, make silks and rope quit gut punching you all the time, and become the angelic blossom of aerial perfection you always were!


Find out what my deal is! Where did I even come from? How impossibly long have I been training this craziness? Why do I think math is so rad??

Course Categories

Join me for brain-melting lecture courses, gun show-worthy lab courses, and private and semi-private lessons are offered in all of these deliciously nerdy categories!


Learn the specific technical elements required to perform skills cleanly and precisely, and how manipulate them at will.

Knot Theory

Study how drops are constructed and learn how different wrap features produce different kinds of drops. 


Understand the fundamental concepts of classical mechanics that govern how aerial acrobatics skills work.      


Work with me one-on-one, in person or to get individualized instruction on your chosen apparatus.  

Be my internet friend!

let’s share awesome skills!

Connect with me on Facebook, see what I’m working on, ask questions, and tell me about your current rad, rad projects!

see my posts and also my cat!

I post all manner of circus shenanigans and also Lamp The Cat in her angel wing thunder vest, which will literally melt your heart.

watch my trainings!

See all the weird drops, climbs, and skills I’m developing and watch the ridiculous collaborations my amazing drummer husband and I invent!

sit at my lunchroom table!

Get an email when I have awesome stuff to tell you about like new blog posts, new courses, book releases, and OMG PRIZES WUT.


Check out my snarky, mathy blog! You’ll find all sorts of aerial arts training advice, acrobatics skill analyses, and equal amounts of delighting in and whining about gravity!

Hello new Internet Best Friend!

My name is Charlie and I ADORE ridiculously confusing aerial silks drop sequences, complicated circus math, nasty-hard strength combinations, and needling apart training progressions until they’re so easy a baby could learn them.



inner circle time!

I’ll let you know when I publish a new blog post, make a new course, or have cool things to give you! (You’ll get an email every month or so.)
