INSTRUCTOR

CJ Anderson

CJ Anderson is a dancer and aerial dance instructor out of the Charleston/Columbia, SC areas. Seeking a new creative outlet after a severe foot injury in high school, she stumbled into her first aerial class. She soon began performing on aerial silks, sling, and lyra. She taught both adult and children’s classes throughout college at All Star Gymnastics from 2016-2018, and has taught aerial classes and workshops at Columbia College too. She was also a performing member of Soda City Cirque in Columbia, SC in 2018.

 

She completed her B.A. degrees at Columbia College in Dance Education and Communication Studies in 2018, and her dance training has heavily influenced her approach to aerial instruction. Training in both circus and dance programs, she often found that her different backgrounds felt at odds with each other; as such, she actively seeks to incorporate aspects of dance training and creative design in her aerial classes to help in building well rounded movers! In each class, she hopes to help each student feel successful and seeks to empower women as they gain strength and confidence in aerial classes.
