Hailing from the high desert sands of Santa Fe, NM, Elise is an aerialist and acrobat with a passion for pushing boundaries through movement exploration. She began her training at Wise Fool New Mexico and later participated in the New England Center for Circus Arts' Professional Track (2015) and Residency Programs. Her specialties include double and single corde lisse, aerial fabric, and handstand acrobatics. She also enjoys performing clown, duo trapeze, partner acrobatics, and stilt-walking. She found empowerment through circus- strength, stability, concentration, courage, persistence, and desire- and felt the need to share it with others through performance and teaching. Elise also a professional musician, vocalist and songwriter.
