Marz Aerial News: Anniversary Edition

Published 8 months ago • 3 min read

Marz Aerial News

The Anniversary Edition!

It's that time of year again - I know the newsletter is a couple days late, but I have needed some time to properly reflect on the past year! Time sure does fly, I can't believe this is already the end of my second year as the owner of the studio! I'm looking forward to what my third year in business holds, and what is to come as the studio is now in the TENTH year that it's been a part of this community. I've personally been a part of our studio since I first came to New Bern in 2017, and I'm so proud to continue to be a leader here.

I know that I say "thank you" in every newsletter, and I sincerely hope that you hear it from me every time that you visit the studio, too. I am always inspired by, proud of, grateful for, and energized by each and every one of my team members, students, campers, and cheerleaders.

In true "I love data and, yes, I have way too many spreadsheets" fashion, I have a lot of fun numbers for 2022-2023: we welcomed FOUR new instructors to our team, and an incredible 305 new clients had their first visit with us in the past year! Between MindBody and Google Maps, I counted 99 (I know, so close) 5 star reviews!

We invested in our local community: we contributed over $1,700 to local non-profits and other organizations through charitable contributions and sponsorships. We also invested in our staff with EIGHT new aerial certification and training programs for our instructors and CPR, AED, & First Aid training for all instructors.

A Look at the Past Year

We kicked off a busy Fall season with a booth at Mumfest, where we had a great view of the Dangerous Prodigy Circus performance in Union Point Park! In October, we also participated in the We Can Be Association’s Trick-or-Treat Trail, and of course, held a huge Halloween showcase. We also had a Self-Care Saturday at the studio with some massages by Daniel (to help us with our sore muscles) and took some beautiful fall photos with Sarah Carmody!

As Winter came, we cheered on the Dangerous Prodigy Circus in their December production of Magical Unreality, hosted our annual Holiday Party, and supported our Marz Aerial Competition Team as they prepared for their second Pole Sport Organization Competition in Cary. At the end of December, Marzanne and the studio were featured on a local podcast hosted by Bear City Impact, The Morning Impact, and we raised money for an amazing, local nonprofit’s holiday drive: Supporting Peace.

In the Spring, we hosted the Turning Pages on Marz Spring Showcase, complete with professional sound & lighting by East Entertainment and photography & videography by Hawk Eye Media. We rocked out to a FABULOUS Poleography routine in honor of The Rocky Horror Show (once again, shout-out to an EPIC cast and crew on that production! and thank you to S + Jane for the photos from the show!) at the New Bern Civic Theatre, and hosted another Self-Care Saturday at the studio with Tara Woodworth, a beloved studio member and owner of Refined Aesthetics.

Over the Summer, we hosted another round of our Marz Aerial Summer Circus Camp, and of course, we started training for more performances - and we are so excited for everything that is coming up! We have Dr. Munsterfield’s Monstrous Marvels, the Marz Aerial “After Dark” performance, the Carolina Circus Festival, The Addams Family at the New Bern Civic Theatre, and our Halloween Showcase.
