Karen de Luna has been dancing for over three decades and started her aerial career on the flying trapeze. In 2011 she took her first silks class, after training in swinging trapeze and handstands. In the aerial arts she finds that her love of being upside down and swinging help calm her monkey mind. She has performed in Europe and North America and choreographed dances and aerial acts on a variety of apparatuses for stage and screen. Karen coaches lyra, trapeze, and flexibility and loves to help students progress in their personal aerial and flexibility endeavors.
