How did you get interested in aerial arts?
I have always been interested in the circus arts, but was under the impression that you had to be born into it, or be a professional dancer/gymnast who is recruited. When I was living in Kansas City, I saw a performance by the local aerial dance group Quixotic. I told my friend who was at the show with me about how I always wished I could be a circus performer. She informed me that there were classes taking place at the gym she went to. I signed up for classes the next day, and haven’t looked back!
What do you love about aerial arts?
I’ve moved around the country quite a bit. Every time I move to a new place I find the aerial dance studio, and am quickly welcomed into the community. The circus arts/aerial dance community is the most friendly, fun, hard working community I’ve ever come across.
What are you currently working on?
I’m currently working on a group piece for the Flight of Fancy show, and a trapeze solo for Ring Around the Rose. And, personally, I’m working on becoming more graceful!
