A retired aerial artist Lorelei started taking movement classes with Martha Graham dancer Willa Shulman in 1969 at age 4.  A career in dance, both modern and jazz, lead to aerial dance and then to circus with a few breaks for injuries in between.After retiring from performing Lorelei founded Gravity Defying Fitness, the first Aerial Fitness studio in the country. 

 

 

Lorelei is proud to have been coached  in the air by Eat Cake founder Lauren Steiner,  static trapeze, single point trapeze and roman rings by Elena Panova, on Tissu by Amanda Star Kelly and in character by Dominique Jando and Jeff Razz. Lorelei has performed in a variety of venues – theatres, nightclubs, museums and office buildings for a diverse array of causes (from Blue Water Network to Queeruption) and a multitude of troupes large and small (from Circus Finelli to Velocity Circus). In 2001 Lorelei began as an instructing assistant for introductory static trapeze at the San Francisco Circus Center. By the 2003 she was teaching aerial conditioning, intro to aerial skills and static trapeze. In 2006 she began coaching choreography to aerialists developing their own acts. Moving to NYC in 2007, Lorelei received training from Radu at Radu Physical Culture in the Radu method, as well as receiving NASM CPT certification. In 2008 she added Kettlebell Concepts training to her repetoire, in 2009 TRX certification and in 2017 AFAA.  At 52 Lorelei is enjoying  life in New Orleans as well as fitness equally in her adopted home.
