Cece Thom discovered aerial acrobatics on her birthday while trying to conquer a fear of heights. A strange obsession was born that soon had her flying high at the MoCADA Soul of Brooklyn Festival, Webster Hall and the Tribeca Rooftop. Cece aspires to be a levitating griot. She loves visual storytelling that blends strength, vulnerability and sass. Cece is addicted to rope, devoted to silks and can’t resist aerial chains. You can occasionally catch her teaching at Omfactory Flight School.
Emily Hursh discovered aerial arts on a whim, and it was love at first swing. She specializes in the silks, exploring contrasts in motion, shape, and style via complex sequences, and dynamic mechanics. She also performs on cloud swing, single point hammock, in which she can also offer flying tarot readings, and she serves a mean flute of champagne on the lyra. Emily continues to grow as a circus artist through studying rope, hula hoop, hand balancing, ballet, and contortion. She has shared her work at many places, including Dixon Place, Tribeca Rooftop, and Socrates Sculpture Park. Emily shares her passion, and the confidence and joy that comes from being present in one’s body through her 101 silks class at Om Factory Flight School.
Gamma Ray began his aerial training in 2016 on a whim. After his first class he fell in love with the athleticism and strength the artistry requires. His training in dance from childhood brings a unique flavor to his style of aerial that incorporates the same ballet discipline and attention to line.
