Dillan is a versatile aerialist that specializes in rope, silks, hammock, and straps. She discovered aerial silks while in Los Angeles, California, then quickly fell in love with the circus community and how small it makes the world seem. She has trained with circus professionals worldwide, focusing primarily on 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 love of flying has taken her around the world - from studying act development in Greece, to busking all over Eastern Europe, to teaching workshops in Slovakia, to participating in aerial festivals in Ireland, France, the UK, and the Barcelona Rope Meeting in 2018. She completed levels 1 & 2 of Paper Doll Militia’s Aerial Teacher Trainings, and taught both adult and children’s classes in LA for 3 years at Kinship Yoga Studios, The Aerial House, as well as Womack and Bowman’s The Loft before recently relocating to Denver, CO. 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 young and old, to remind us that there is still enough magic in this world and in our bodies to allow us to fly.
