Heather Booth first learned the art of trapeze and aerial dance in 1997 in New Orleans, and she’s had a hard time walking on the ground ever since! Heather owns Miraas Aerial, a Denver-based aerial studio, where she spent four years as Creative Director and Lead Instructor, teaching aerial silk/fabric, static trapeze, lyra, and aerial yoga to adults and children. 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. Heather’s aerial trainers have included: Julio Batista de Souza of Cirque du Soleil’s “Ka”, Alexandra Walker of the Slavic Sisters; Carrie Heller of the Circus Arts Institute; Shayna Swanson of Aloft, Lisa Natoli of Lisa’s Bright Ideas, and Josh McGirk of Aeriality, where she received Aerial Yoga teacher training.
