Leslie got started in aerial arts because she LOVES dance, she always loved seeing aerial performers in shows like Circque du Soleil and to build her confidence. She loves that it showcases her strength, gives her an opportunity to perform, and she gets to make art. Being able to make routines and perform in front of an audience is one of her favourite things. She lives for the applause and trying to perfect her moves. If she can make the audience feel something, she knows she has done a good job. Pole dancing and aerial hoop are two of her biggest passion.

Celeste was so excited to join the FLY crew! She moved to Regina 2018, and started taking classes at Fly as soon as they opened the doors at their new home. She immediately felt comfortable, and had a sense of being home. She played with Pole, Hoop, and Sling, and is finding herself the most comfortable flowing on the fabrics. Though she's open to anything where she can choreograph! Celeste has a background in gymnastics - competing, and then coaching, for nearly 20 years.
