Gena DuBose 
Aerial Lyra (Hoop)

Gena has always been a free spirit, loving the adventure of moving to different cities and interacting with different people. Through her journey she was introduced to Aerial Hoop and Trapeze while living in Asheville, NC in 2009. During her years of traveling, Gena has trained at Kinetic Arts in Oakland, CA; Orlando Aerial Arts and at Trapeze Federation, a flying trapeze school, with Efe Ilkay in Orlando, FL.

Gena spends most of her time teaching Pilates and Aerial Hoop in Durham, Chapel Hill and Raleigh. Her classes are motivational, challenging, and leave each student feeling accomplished.


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.
