Coach, Marketing Manager
Evanya is an instructor and performer who specializes in aerial silks and partner acrobatics. Inspired by a Cirque du Soliel show, she took her first silks class and fell in love. She was recruited on-site to train with a performing company at Aeris Aerial Arts in Utah, where she was coached by Cirque’s Darla Day. As a high-level gymnast and competitive dancer, she caught on quickly and began teaching. She was pulled away from aerial, accepting a collegiate athletic scholarship for partner stunting. Her cheer team won many National titles, but her heart always pulled her back to aerial arts. Evanya has been coaching in several disciplines since 2016, including aerial silks, contortion, partner stunt, acro choreography, gymnastics, trapeze, cheerleading, tumbling, and hand balancing. Occasionally, she will play around on other apparatuses like the lyra, sling, rope, and straps.
Evanya has a BA in Integrated Studies, with concentrations in Business Marketing, Nutrition Education, and Child Studies. She enjoys digital editing, traveling, and spending time with her spouse.
