Bek Brooking Testimonial Review

Bekk Brooking

Dear Mel,
I am just writing to thank you for your amazing aerial school, Avion Aerial Arts. For years I have loved the aerial arts and always wanted to learn how to fly like those talented artists in Cirque du Soleil! I was thoroughly excited when I saw that you had junior classes starting at the studio where my daughters learn cheerleading and tumbling. I couldn’t enrol my eldest daughter fast enough! Then I learned that you taught adults as well! I couldn’t contain my excitement and immediately enquired to see if there was availability for myself and a girlfriend to attend. It was the best decision of my life! A little apprehensive at first, my first instructor, Lauren, helped me get off the ground with a ton of encouragement. It took me weeks to finally get up that silk and it was the best feeling in the world! A year later and I’m still coming back each week to learn something new and practice all the tricks that I have learnt over the past year.

On Sunday (7th December) I performed in the Beginner Showcase for the first time. I was a bundle of nerves but with Mel and Fern’s encouragement I managed to get out there and do my bit in our class production. I must admit I am still on a high from actually getting through the performance!

Mel is not only an amazing performer herself but one of the most encouraging and awesome instructors I have met. Mel goes above and beyond to help you no matter how trivial the request. All the instructors that I have attended classes with are professional, friendly and most of all encouraging. They go out of their way to help you no matter what mess you get yourself into! Since joining the school, I (40 years old) and my two daughters (aged 10 and 8), have felt very much a part of the aerial family! I am twice as old as most of my classmates and not flexible or athletic in anyway but as far as Mel and her instructors are concerned that doesn’t matter, as long as you have a willingness to learn that’s what is most important!

We love it very much and would recommend Melise Avion of Avion Aerial Arts to anyone interested in learning a new skill!
Thank you Mel for everything you have done for my girls and I.
