I have been working on aerial silks for nearly ten years, and chose them as my specialism during my Masters of Choreography as DOCH, Sweden which is a renowned university for both dance and circus arts.
Aerial Hoop was my secondary discipline at Circus School and I still perform and teach regularly. My style is fluid and dance based, and I also perform with a winch or counterweighter to create breathtaking moments of flight.
Aerial harness dance is an art form in its own right, and covers both aerial dance at height, and using other equipment and surfaces as fixed points to work with. In vertical dance, the movements are performed horizontally where the wall becomes the ‘floor’.
I have been working as part of an aerial duo since 2006, including doubles trapeze, doubles aerial hoop, synchronised silks and loop, and partner harness dance.
