Rachel McMeachin

OWNER / CO-DIRECTOR OF PERFORMANCE

LEAD AERIAL SILKS / ACROYOGA INSTRUCTOR

Rachel is an avid learner with a natural curiosity for movement, structure, and expression. Her teaching style is constantly adapting to introduce new inspiration, knowledge, and community cultivation. She is an enthusiastic educator that instinctively creates classes based on progressive experiences that lead to her students’ success.

Dagney Velazquez

CO-DIRECTOR OF PERFORMANCE

Performing and directing run for four generations in Dagney’s family, beginning with her grandmother, and continuing with her father, brother, and daughter. Through them, and through years of her own practice, she learned the value of helping others create and share works of beauty, grace, humor, and love. Communities can experience powerful healing and strengthening through all forms of art, and Dagney has a passion for working with other circus performers to bring their own unique art to the larger community.

Carolyn fisher

SECONDARY AERIAL SILKS INSTRUCTOR

Fitness is Carolyn’s passion, and pairing that with the creative self expression of aerial silks is her perfect combination. It is very rewarding to share her passion, and teaching allows Carolyn the opportunity to make aerial acrobatics available to everyone.

Happy Memories from our STUDENTS

Our extensive expertise will make sure that you have your own Circus Successes!

Strewn with glitter and sweat, friendship and strength, Voler is a welcoming second home. It is a place to test your limits and surpass them, to get strong, flexible and make profound connections with people you might never meet otherwise. I am stronger than I have ever been in every sense of the word and I credit Voler with so much of that. It is so much more than circus, and fitness,  I have never laughed more in one geographical location than at Voler!!!

Karen Snyder

I started at Voler Aerial Academy 3 years ago with a dream to perform. I want to make people forget about life for a little bit. I love Voler because the teachers have educated me so I can fly with confidence. Each time I learn something new and challenging. With the support of my class mates and teachers I know I can do anything.
