Qassandra Kauzlarich

Qassandra is a multimedia performance artist with a relentless creative drive.  Her hard work met with her passions and talents have taken her to what would seem to most, a dream. Her formal dance training began when she was just four years old, and creative movement has proven to be an endless source of inspiration.  She spent the last several years touring with Circuses such as  Zoppé Italian Circus and The Mysterious Circus where her travels culminated with an acrobatics residency in WOW: The Vegas Spectacular at The Rio Casino on the famous Las Vegas Strip. For six days a week she performed rigorous routines in dance, lyra, straps, hand-to-hand, bungees, and custom built aerial apparatuses like the aerial anchor and aerial umbrella. She has trained and coached advanced acrobats for the last fifteen years, and she loves to share her passion for movement with students of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities.  Her extensive coaching knowledge spans to many areas such as the Silks, Aerial Hoop, Cube, Trapeze, Straps, Partner Acrobatics, Handstands, and Flexibility. She seeks to emphasise technique and furthering her student's own practice in movement. Her classes tend to include style development, technique, body positioning, awareness, and even choreography or sequencing. She loves what she does and wishes to share her knowledge and passion for movement in all forms!
