This Thanksgiving we are counting our blessings as we welcome aerial instructor Holly Price to the Elevated Aerials team!!
Holly graduated from NKU (1999) with a Bachelors in Art and a Minor in dance. Since then she has been passionately creating artistic performances in Cincinnati for 18 years. Holly taught aerial silks at Bella Forza Fitness for 4 years, was an instructor at PlayThink Movement Festival for 3 consecutive years and continues to perform/teach at Mojo Circus. She independently wrote an Individual Artist Grant through the city of Cincinnati for the 2009-2010 year for an aerial duet with Jeremy Millsaps and created her own aerial choreography for the “audience pick” of the 2017 Cincinnati Fringe Festival in a piece called Clara by Alyssa Michaud and Carly Wilson. She also created aerial work to accompany Exhale Dance Company’s Halloween show at the Jarson Kaplin Theater in 2017. Holly is happily employed at BodyMind Balance Pilates and Gyrotonics Studio where she has taught Pilates for 14 years and Gyrotonics for 3. She is thrilled to become part of the Elevated Aerials family and we couldn’t be happier to have her on board!
“This path has led me to a variety of disciplines, but the human body has remained the focus of my exploration. The Contemporary Dance Theater has fed my soul for many wonderful years. I have proficiencies in formal forms of dance, modern dance, and studied the Dunham technique for 5 years with Terri Brown at CDT. I also study and perform improve dance to explore movement, unusual spaces or objects spanning varied physical mediums. About 13 years ago, my love for climbing lead me to start receiving formal training in aerial ballet.” – Holly Price
