In addition to teaching aerial in the studio,
Heather has spent years traveling and teaching culture and human rights as a university professor. An advocate of ‘social circus’, Heather has worked as an aerial trainer in Israel, Palestine, and Thailand, teaching trust and peace through circus skills.
