Allira’s addiction to dancing upside down began in 2007 at Pole Divas. When Aerial Divas originated it was her chance to join the circus! Allira developed an immediate passion for aerial hoop and now loves passing that on to her students. She says; ‘The best part about Aerial Divas is now everyone can run away to the circus! We can all experience how fun it is to dance, spin and fly in the air!’ Allira ensures her students are gaining strength, fitness and flexibility from their aerial hoop workout and most importantly are happy and having fun!
