“Love Afterglow! The owner, Jolene, is passionate about Aerial Arts and it really comes through in her teaching. I have been to other aerial studios all over the country and I can really tell that for Jolene, although it is her business, her focus is primarily on her students and their growth and safety; Afterglow definitely stands out from other local studios in that regard. Her team of teachers are knowledgeable, experienced, personable, and share a mutual love for their art. Doesn't matter if you are an absolute beginner or seasoned professional, there is a place for you at Afterglow!”
