About our Teachers
Our master teachers, Kerri Kresinski and Kameko Shibata have backgrounds in technical dance, gymnastics, Chinese acrobatics, anatomy, yoga, contortion, and aerial arts, as well as certifications in bodywork, personal training, fitness science, sports nutrition, yoga, Ayurveda, and herbalism. They are excited to share this smorgasbord of movement with you.
Kerri Kresinski has been performing and teaching acrobatics, yoga, dance, and aerial arts for over 15 years throughout the world. Her life’s work, as an artist and a leader, has been to develop and deepen her study of the body—physically, emotionally and spiritually. She has learned that anything is possible with patience, discipline and a positive attitude. Kerri expresses her passion and spirit through movement, and feels that the body is the gateway to the higher powers for healing, transformation and expression. She is truly a unique performer, engaging, thrilling, and moving audiences with her skills, style, and heart. She is a co-founder of Sweet Can Circus and the founder/director of Sweet Retreats. She loves to help people reach beyond their perceived limits and strive for new heights. “Believe in yourself, and live BIG.” Read more about Kerri here.Click here for her youtube page where you can find her performance videos and aerial instructional videos.
Kameko Shibata, a yogini Ayurvedic practitioner by day, is a fierce aerial performer by night. She brings her passion for human strength and grace into captivating performances that invite you to become radically present. She specializes in dynamic aerial rope, inspired by the simple and stark nature of the apparatus. Inspired by the natural world, live musical collaborations, social justice story telling, site specific work, invented apparatuses, and warm beverages of all kind she uses performance as a invitation for deeper engagement with ourselves, each other, environment and community.
Sweet Retreats has encouraged me to be a better version of myself both physically in the circus arts and also personally in my interactions with friends and the community. The instructors at Sweet Retreats are not only world class teachers, they are also some of the most caring, beautiful, and authentic individuals. I’m so fortunate to have discovered this paradise of athletic endeavors, delicious food, unending laughter, and all within the gorgeous surrounding.– Liz Marotte, Oakland, CA
