I had the honor of working on a duo lyra act with the amazing Alison Tye and Sylvia Hernandez DiStasi, for the Fifth Third Bank Family Pavilion Grand Opening at Navy Pier Chicago, in collaboration with the Chicago Children's Theatre. The act was choreographed by Alison Tye, who I look up to so much as a mentor, coach, and friend. It was an incredible experience, and my heart is filled with so much love and appreciation for this opportunity.
My 9-month circus training program finally drew to a close. From September 2017- June 2018, I trained 27 hours a week in physical theatre, dance, aerial dance, tumbling, partner acrobatics, handbalancing, and contortion, and created 2 acts. My major was in aerial lyra, and my piece was named "La Luna". My minor was in contortion/tumbling/handbalancing, and my piece was named "Loom".
