Founder and Director
Founder and Director Kimberly Sende has trained under the guidance of former Cirque du Soleil performer and founder of the New England Center for Circus Arts (NECCA), Elsie Smith. She has produced and choreographed aerial dance concerts throughout Atlanta such as The Great Caper and Noche de Circo Internacional.
Kimberly discovered aerial arts in 2008 and she has been flying ever since! After receiving her initial aerial training from Heliumm Aerial Dance studios in NYC, she joined Fly Fitness Studios in Atlanta as Creative Director in 2012 and formed Inspire Aerial Arts shortly thereafter. She is passionate about aerial silks and her vision is to create an inviting and exciting space for students of all shapes and ages to discover the joy of playing in the sky.
Shannon Stanley is a classically trained ballet dancer. She started ballet training at the age of 3 and went on to perform with companies such as the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, Virginia Ballet Theater, Governor’s School for the Arts, and the Miami City Ballet. She took a hiatus from dance while getting her Bachelor’s degree in Humanities from Florida State University. Wanting to use her classical training and learn a new art form, she began studying aerial arts after seeing photos of local aerial dancers. Ms. Stanley continues to expand her knowledge of the performing arts and health fitness and is excited to join Inspire Aerial Arts to share her passion with others.
