ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Juli Bierwirth transitioned from a career in clinical nutrition to circus in 2013 when she began teaching and catching for Leap Flying Trapeze School. In 2014, she was hired to teach hand balancing and partner acrobatics at Canopy Studio, a circus school in Athens, GA, where she taught and trained for almost 8 years. In her tenure at Canopy, Juli also taught acrobatic pole and cyr wheel and ran workshops in circus physics and sports nutrition. Juli particularly loves introducing people to partner acrobatics and infusing her teaching with the logic and physics of circus arts. She joined the Upside Aerial instructor team in 2022, teaching partner acrobatics, hand balancing and inversions, pole, and aerial pole.
