Ages 7-9: Kids Aerial Series


This class is taught by:

Skylar Coutinho

Skylar leads Kids Aerial classes, and trains aerial, acrobatics, and Cyr wheel at MASC. She is a Missoula Montana native with a lifelong passion for movement arts. Being a natural daredevil she took to gymnastics as a kid. She grew up training at Bitterroot Gymnastics in Missoula. As an adult she discovered hula hooping which introduced her to the world of circus arts, partner acro jams, and aerial dance. Sky began actively finding teachers and workshops to improve her skills. Eventually she was talent scouted to attend the National Institute of Circus arts in Australia, where she was given the opportunity to work with world class coaches in the arts of hand-balancing, contortion, dance, performance and refining partner acrobatic, aerial, and hoop skills. Sky's latest passion is the Cyr Wheel which landed her in another professional circus program in Portland, OR. Ever the adventurer, she recently returned from a vigorous training regimen with a Cyr specialist in San Francisco.

Skylar has several years experience coaching gymnastics, and teaching workshops and private lessons in the many disciplines she enjoys. She has a long time goal of touring with a professional Circus company. Sky loves to share her knowledge and help people gain confidence and efficacy.
