Performing Artist at #HellaBlack Vol. 6: Sacred

I grew up as a competitive dancer, from hip hop to tap, I fell in love with movement and performance arts. In 2017, I discovered the world of circus arts and I’ve trained as an aerialist for 6 years, learning from the best aerial arts studios in MA. My specialities include aerial hoop, aerial sling and dance. I currently a coach at Esh Circus Arts, my goals as a coach, is to teach my students to feel comfortable in their bodies as they express themselves authentically in the air. My goals as a performance artist is to continue to perform in spaces that allow me to express myself freely through music and movement.
