Closer To Seamless: Lyra With Elisa Penello says
Elisa Penello is a professionally trained aerialist, dancer and acrobat with roots in Brooklyn, New York. She specializes in aerial rope, lyra and fabric with a style strongly informed by the clean lines and movement of classical ballet and modern technique. Her circus skills are built on a foundation of over 15 years of rigorous dance and floor acrobatics training, traveling the US as a competitive dancer. Most recently she performed as an aerialist on the national tour of Peter Pan 360 with movement and choreography by Gypsy Snider of Les 7 Doigts de la Main. (from her website:

Elisa is currently taking a short visit to Denver from her new home in Portland, OR, to teach with us as a guest!

Elisa's lyra workshop for intermediate and advanced students will encourage self-exploration and style within a framework of skills on the lyra. We will explore transitions and movement quality to develop sequences that turn a list of skills into a melody of skills. This class is great for developing aerialists who want to artfully construct their vocabulary to create performance-ready work.
