Haylee Matteri-DeGroote

Haylee is our Disney loving, California grown aerial instructor. She's been practicing various aerial arts for four years and has been teaching for two. She fell in love with aerial as soon as she stepped foot in a small studio in Northern California. She has competed on the pole stage for the last four years, and her heart belongs to lyra when it comes to an apparatus of choice. With a witty sense of humor, she enjoys being with odd balls like herself and finds that the pole and aerial communities serve her best.​

Macey McDowell

Macey started her aerial journey in 2019, wanting to try something new that would challenge her body and mind, so she and her best friend took their first pole class. That turned into her diving into the aerialist community, trying out all of the apparatuses and falling in love with the whole world of it.
