Northwest Aerials began on August 1, 1979 as a small program conducting classes at Seattle Pacific University in the evenings and Saturdays while the owner, Patti Gable, was attending the University of Washington. Upon Patti's graduation from the UW, she moved the club to Kirkland in May of 1981 with enrollment less than 100 students. Northwest Aerials was located across the street from its present location from May 1981 until August 1994, when we moved to our new home ( the present location ). Featuring programs in gymnastics, dance, swimming and trampoline, NWA is the premier program in the Northwest. With over 23 years of experience, Northwest Aerials is one of the oldest and largest gymnastics and dance schools in the United States. In addition to offering the best quality of classes, the team program at NWA has produced over 200 state champions, 20 regional champions and 20 gymnasts on the United States and Regional National Teams. Our finest accomplishment has been the fact that 7 of our athletes have received collegiate scholarships in gymnastics, and we are the home of the 1999 National champion.
