I am an aerialist and dancer and I perform on straps, dance trapeze, aerial silks, aerial hoop, chains, hammock, bungee, and harness, as well as custom-designed apparatuses. I have been accepted into the Cirque Du Soleil casting database.
I am currently based in NY and perform aerial at venues such as The Box NYC, The Slipper Room, Duane Park, Silo Brooklyn, House of Yes, and The Muse. I also regularly perform corporate gigs and weddings. I own my own lollipop lyra. I currently teach aerial at Vital Climbing Gym and Body and Pole and formerly taught at The Muse Brooklyn and The Muse Gowanus. I have also taught ballet, modern, jazz, and aerial to children and adults.
I have traveled the world performing as an aerialist/dancer for cruise-ships, theme-parks, national and international tours.
I worked for Royal Caribbean Productions on the Legend of the Seas and the Splendour of the Seas where I travelled around Central and South America, the Mediterranean, Asia, and Australia (2014-2016). I worked for Cirque Dreams performing the role of Mrs. Claus in the Holidaze U.S. and Canada tour (2016). I was a featured dancer/acrobat in Roll Out the Barrel at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Virginia (2015), and toured international dance festivals in Burkina Faso with RudduR Dance (2015).
Prior to my international adventures, I obtained a B.F.A. in Dance and a B.A. in English from New York University. After graduating, I spent a few years performing with dance companies in New York including Grounded Aerial (and was also the Assistant Choreographer for this company), Racoco Productions, Timelapse Dance, and General Mischief Dance Theater. I performed a wide range of dance forms including contemporary, musical theater style jazz, experimental dance-theater, ballet, and ballroom at venues such as Broadway Bares, Roseland Theater, Studio 54, Paramount Hotel, Ailey Citigroup Theater, Joyce Soho, Danspace Project, Vassar College and La Mama in New York as well as and the Spring of Culture Festival in Manama, Bahrain.
