...some beautiful aerial routines ... Baines plays Isabelle, a charming if not slightly off-kilter woman harbouring a serious romantic obsession… Baines' work on the silks was impressive - it's a shame there wasn't more of it.
Jen Zoratti, Uptown July 2010

Baines creates lovely visual images, suspended 10 feet above the stage, wrapped in a white cloth and straining her muscles in ghostly sculpture.
Mike O'Brien, CBC July 2010

You have to admire her skill as she entwines herself in the stretchy silks for circus-style aerial tricks…
Alison Mayes, Winnipeg Free Press, July 18, 2010

Ms. Baines became one of four certified Gryotonic instructors in Winnipeg. Gyrotonic is a fitness system similar to Pilates that is very circular and three dimensional in its movement patterns and takes breathing to a whole new level. Gryotonic has rejuvenated Ms. Baines spine making it feel ten years younger. Thus making Aerial Dance even more fun to perform.
