Seanna Sharpe's career has required her to hang suspended from scaffolding, forklifts, and bridges. At first glance, these credentials may sound like she's qualified to work construction or wash skyscraper windows, and as an aerialist, artist, director, dancer, and teacher, perhaps no task is too far removed from her wheelhouse.

At Katana Flight School, she and her staff teach guests of all ages and skill levels to perform acrobatic maneuvers using equipment such as aerial silks and the trapeze. Whether seeking exercise and fun or a serious career, attendees learn to spin, twirl, and twist as a means of artistic expression.
