Dillan is a versatile aerialist who specializes in rope, silks, hammock, and straps. She discovered aerial silks in Los Angeles, California, quickly falling in love with the circus community and how small it makes the world seem. She has trained with circus professionals worldwide, developing a strong, unique movement quality and creative theatrical skills.
She has had some amazing coaches along the way, including Brett Womack, Emiliano Ron, Alex Allan, Rain Anya, Sarah Bebe Holmes, Will Davis, David Gray, Chantal McCormik, and Fred Deb (to name just a few). Her passion has taken her around the world - studying act development in Greece, teaching workshops in Slovakia, participating in aerial festivals in Ireland, France, the UK, and Barcelona Rope Meeting. She completed levels 1 & 2 of Paper Doll Militia’s Aerial Teacher Trainings, and taught adult and children’s classes in LA at Kinship Yoga Studios, The Aerial House, and Womack & Bowman’s The Loft before relocating to Denver. Her love of teaching is matched only by her love of performance, most recently in Paper Doll Militia’s aerial theatre production “Warped,” in which she worked on the creation and development phase and as the understudy for Catalyst.
She hopes to pass on her love of aerial arts, performance, and dancing in the air to remind us that there is still enough magic in this world, and in our bodies to allow us to fly.
