SOAR AERIAL DANCE
Teaching through creativity and technique
WHO WE ARE
What makes us SOAR...
SOAR Aerial Dance started because the founder, Gena DuBose, wanted to fill the gap between recreational aerial arts training and professional development, helping aerialists feel well rounded in their artistry.
We encourage our students to safely explore beyond tricks by incorporating movement and freedom of expression with a focus on body awareness, technique, and movement quality.
SOAR has grown into an aerial education platform that works with aerialists and instructors who are ready to enhance their teaching. We offer virtual and in-person workshops, private lessons, and teacher trainings.
All bodies are welcome in our offerings, regardless of size, color, or athletic background. We just ask that you find the program that is right for you.
Owner | Teacher Trainer
Gena DuBose is a movement artist, aerial hoop coach and the founder of SOAR Aerial Dance.
Aerial arts, specifically Lyra, has been her passion since 2009. Though Gena was never a trained dancer, she has a natural athleticism that she uses to bring her own style of movement and grace to her artistry. She has spent over 10+ years navigating her path of creativity with a focus on physical awareness, movement capabilities, and how they pertain to the human body. Through trainings in STOTT Pilates, Power yoga, Ashtanga yoga, and ACE, she began to apply everything she had learned to her aerial practice, gaining certifications in each one along the way.
Her work with SOAR focuses on collaborating with professional, and local artists to bridge the gap between recreational and traditional aerial arts.She teaches students how to thrive using creativity and technique, also helping other instructors expand on their own abilities through teacher trainings and mentorships.
She specializes in “Lyra Sequencing," and is the creator of the Aerial Instructor Enhancement Program, a 6-week online course for instructors to learn how to enhance their teaching using creativity and technique.
When she isn’t choreographing or coaching, you can find Gena sewing and creating unique back warmers for movement artists.
