Already a trained yoga instructor, Erin Ball’s transformation into an aerial-silk tycoon began when she discovered circus performance at the Kingston Buskers festival in 2007, as mentioned by the Whig-Standard. She instantly fell in love with the airborne art form, and immediately enrolled in circus courses all across Canada and the United States. Now, Erin shares her passion for acrobatics at Twisted, a circus school that specializes in HoopDance, flexibility for aerialists, and Pilates.
Today, within the Loyalist Gymnastics Club, Erin works alongside skilled fitness and aerial instructors. The staff collectively teaches small groups of no more than 15 people how to flip, twirl, and spin using aerial silks, static trapezes, and aerial hammocks. Students are never pushed past their limits, and are encouraged to explore at their own pace as they learn each move elevated above precisely placed crash mats and squishy, accommodating clowns.
This kind of care and consideration has gained Erin praise from her patrons as well as the media, including the Kingston East News which said, "It's safe to say that Erin is comfortable with and well qualified to guide you in your aerial yoga practice."
