What’s it like to be an AntiGravity instructor?
“Working for AntiGravity Orlando has brought many opportunities throughout the years I’ve worked for them. Seeing students grow has been an absolute honor. I’ve been fortunate enough to see many of our students come in with no aerial training & see them grow to aspire to become professionals. It warms my heart when we do showcases and to see their passion & support. We are a community and a family, wanting everyone to strive to be their best. AntiGravity creates stepping stone opportunities for students to professionals. We strive for inclusivity in all aspects of AntiGravity and that creates a positive place to work & train. As an instructor & professional aerialist with AntiGravity I get the opportunity to train on innovative apparatuses first hand. I get the opportunity to not only grow as an instructor but as a professional artist. They are supportive in my career and where it may lead me. They are open to sitting down & talking with me as an instructor & professional artist. I’m valued as an artist and not just another number, which is super important to me. Again, this is more than just a company to work for, it’s a community & family. AntiGravity lives up to their company values: Safety-QualityIntegrity-Inclusivity-Respect-Organicity.” – Brandi Wines, AG Aerial Instructor
