After leaving the office world behind in 2014 to pursue teaching yoga full time, Brenda (little B) discovered aerial dance, and fell in love with performing and teaching aerial arts. A yogi, aerialist, and professional stilt walker, she finds joy entertaining others and empowering people through movement – teaching yoga, aerial silks, sling, lyra, rope, and cloud swing. She became a collective member of Cycropia Aerial Dance in 2018, and has performed with other local aerial troupes. Having never been a dancer in her life, Brenda knows first hand the transformative power of a supportive circus environment.
