Blythe Williams
Aerial Silks

Blythe Williams was introduced to aerial silks in the spring of 2010, when an instructor starting a class asked potential students if they had “ever wanted to run away and join the circus”. Blythe could not sign up fast enough. She has been obsessed ever since and is thrilled at the opportunity to share her passion for being in the air with others.

Blythe is a teacher in her professional life, and has over 15 years experience teaching deaf and hard of hearing students for Durham Public Schools. She loves spending time in the water as a longtime lifeguard and aquatics instructor. In addition to teaching and learning, she is an avid marksman and long-time member of the Durham Pistol and Rifle Club. She is the proud mom to three cats and a wife to her doting husband, Chip. She is grateful for the opportunity to learn as well as teach at DSB.


Durham School for Ballet & the Performing Arts’ aim is to provide a space for the cultivation of creativity through dance. Dance is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun. Our role as Dance Educators is to help children climb their own mountains.
