Afterglow Aerial Arts is a beautiful, spacious, clean space in a hopping neighborhood on NE Williams easily accessible via Tri-Met and bike. The silks and lyra classes are well-paced with great instruction for floor conditioning and the teachers are patient in their guidance in aerial movement. I was a complete beginner when I first started coming to classes just maybe six months ago or so, and I wouldn’t trade my experience for ANYTHING!
Went here for a class while visiting a friend in Portland and it was amazing! Jolene is a total goddess!!!
Afterglow was founded by someone with a vision and plenty of ambition, which the results have shown in the significant improvements she has made since it started.
I looooove this studio and the instructors!! Jolene and Mary are SUCH amazing teachers!

Definitely the best aerial studio around! All of the teachers are amazing & the space is beautiful. I have been taking trapeze lessons from Jolene, and am super pleased & impressed with her knowledge, expertise & professionalism.
Afterglow is a wonderful studio for the aerial arts with a wide range of classes to choose from. All the instructors are very approachable, welcoming, and encouraging, something I find very important in aerial to contrast the difficulty.
I started at Afterglow knowing absolutely nothing about aerial silks, having zero upper body strength and my instructor, Mary, has been so kind and understanding and patient throughout my entire experience! The studio is owned and ran by a wonderfully talented and giving lady, Jolene; I have been coming here for about six months now and I have no intention of stopping.
When I lived in Portland I would frequent the classes and every time I visit the city I make sure to drop in. The teachers know what they are doing and provide a fun and supportive environment for you to hone in on your skills. It’s creative, playful, and challenging. I highly recommend Afterglow.

This is my favorite place ever. I am completely in love with aerial arts, and this studio has been an amazing place to learn and grow, and push myself to do things I’ve never been able to do before.
