Stephanie Roberts

Stephanie Roberts

Stephanie Roberts first tried AcroYoga in the fall of 2014 after being persuaded to stay late one evening after a yoga class. It didn’t take long before she became hooked, and co-founded an AcroYoga student organization at the University of Arkansas. She received her RYT-200 yoga teacher training the summer of 2016, and has been passionate about sharing the wonderful world of yoga and AcroYoga ever since. She moved to Tennessee from Arkansas spring in the spring of 2017, and now teaches at VIDA Hot Yoga in Kingsport, and Night Owl Circus Arts. Bringing Acro to the Tri-Cities has been one of her main goals since moving here, and she is honored to be a part of the AcroYoga movement in East Tennessee! She absolutely loves being able to teach the two things she is most passionate about, and she loves sharing the experience of flying with others! Acro allows you to build a new kind of trust with people, and enables you to let go of the negative stigma that our society assigns to touch and personal space. Acro provides a safe environment for you to grow as a person, as well as grow within a community.

Lauren Wirick

Lauren Wirick

Lauren Wirick has enjoyed performing on stage through dance, drama, singing, and playing instruments since the age of 6. Fulfilling her childhood dream of running away with the circus, she started training on aerial silks in 2010 through Anti-Gravity and Orlando Aerial Arts. Training under artist director, Jennifer Drabik Pierce, her aerial experience expanded through various art forms including lyra, cube, Spanish web, hammock, and aerial partnering and synchro acts in addition to aerial silks. She enjoyed teaching her love and passion in the aerial art form at Orlando Aerial Arts and performing through Suspended Artistry Performance Company professionally for community events, including Give Kids the World, Microsoft, Power-Gen International, and Red Chair Affair. She also enjoyed performing through dance with Central Florida Community Arts. Lauren continues her passion with teaching aerial choreography, lyra, and silks at Night Owl Circus Arts in classes. She loves character performances as well as deep emotional pieces that engage the crowd to feel what she is performing and invite them in to the story she is telling. Lauren has recently added acro yoga to her list of skills and hopes to incorporate this onto the stage as a beautiful art form.

Seth Delatte

Seth Delatte

Seth Delatte was born July 22, 1996 in North Texas. After moving to Northeast Tennessee at the age of four, he became interested in gymnastics and began training. In 2006, he had achieved the status of State Of Tennessee All-Around Champion for Level Six Men’s Gymnastics. Time off and recovery from an injury helped him discover his talent for coaching.
As a gymnastics instructor, Seth has found a way to help young boys find a love for the sport and to achieve their goals, teaching them the important life lessons that are derived from it. He believes gymnastics to not only be in the gym, but also to be a lifestyle. The lessons learned in the gym can help you in life, as well. Gymnastics provides many useful life skills such as strength, patience, and respect. Seth’s coaching philosophy stresses the belief that nothing comes without hard work and dedication. Whether in the gym for a practice session or in a competitive setting, his athletes only fail when they lose the desire and the will to learn from their mistakes. Seeing young boys grow to love the sport of gymnastics and to learn the life lessons it has to offer are some of Seth’s primary motivations for coaching.

Caitlin Leavitt

Caitlin Leavitt

Caitlin's love for aerial started from an Instagram post. She was so mesmerized by it that she instantly went to Google to find a studio in the area that taught aerial silks. She stumbled across Night Owl Circus arts where she signed up for her first class and was immediately hooked. Growing up she always wanted to be a ballerina but was never allowed to take classes. She loved the gracefulness of ballet dancers and envied it as a child. Her favorite thing about aerial is being able to complete complex moves and be graceful while doing them. Caitlin is a mother to two beautiful children: four-year-old Colt, and one-year-old Cora. She hopes they will one day take aerial classes too, and fall in love with aerial like she did. Caitlin works as an Administrative Assistant in the Division of Health Professions at Northeast State Community College.
