Weightless Aerial Company
Creative Director
Memphis, TN/Traveling
I've been circus-ing 8 years professionally and teaching aerial for 6 years. As the resident aerial instructor at Rhodes College, I specialize in circus theatre and translating movement into stories. I am trained in aerial silks, hoop, doubles aerial, spansets, chains, trapeze/triple trapeze and a variety of ground skills including fire spinning, dance, adagio, and bullwhip. I recently returned to Memphis after working as the lead studio instructor at On The Fly Productions in St. Louis. Some recent exploits include touring with the Larry Clark's Shrine Circus as an adagio and triple trapeze artist, adapting and choreographing Edward Ablee’s classic play, “The Zoo Story” and Mark Ravenhill's "(Pool) no water" for circus theatre, and creating the critically acclaimed bi-monthly aerial theatre show “Night Shift.”
My teaching focus is on safe aerial progressions in your unique style for a long and fulfilling aerial career.
Talk to me about ANYTHING CIRCUS (or just anything in general-I'm super friendly), but also; collegiate circus, producing shows and tours, the role of circus in modern theatre, and about vegans and dogs.
