Gravity & Levity are an aerial dance company specialising in vertical dance performance, world-class artist development and exciting audience imagination.
We create innovative aerial dance that redefines what and where a dance floor can be, both for an audience and for ourselves. We’re committed to accessibility and amplifying alternative perspectives for both dance and circus.
I define myself as an aerialist/equestrienne, (if that’s a thing), teacher and costume maker, although for the last year ‘unemployed’ seemed a more apt description…… last year brought up some tricky questions like age, being good enough and is this a precedent to stop – before quickly realising I didn’t want to stop.

That sea blocks me creatively and technically, I can’t find the motivation to train.Read More
The advice I would like to give to my younger self or anyone starting out in the world of aerial is “You are unique and will do things in your own way, take your time and trust in your own abilities. The bonds you build with people in your training and art are invaluable, make time for friendships especially when things get tough.”Read More
As an aerialist/artist in my early 40’s, having time over the past year to be introspective has been amazing, and something I don’t think I would have made happen otherwise.
