Evanya Cartier

Company Member


Evanya is a performer who specializes in aerial silks and partner acrobatics. Inspired by a Cirque du Soleil show in 2015, she took her first aerial class in Salt Lake City and fell in love. As a retired high-level gymnast and competitive dancer, she caught on quickly. She trained with a performing company at Aeris Aerial Arts, where she was coached by Cirque’s Darla Day. She was pulled away from aerial with 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, lyra, sling, contortion, partner stunt, gymnastics, cheerleading, and tumbling. Occasionally, she will play around on other apparatuses like the aerial pole, lyra, sling, and wall dancing.

Evanya has a BA in Integrated Studies, with concentrations in Business Marketing, Nutrition Education, and Child Studies. She enjoys digital editing, going out to eat, and spending time with her dog Hazel. 

Evanya is certified to teach Beginners Aerial Fabric by the Circus Arts Institute, an ACE recognized teacher training program.

Evanya is available for private instruction.
