Angela Kollmer is originally from Hillsborough, New Jersey and is excited to perform in her first Bloom Festival! Angela, a graduate of Northeastern University, participated in competitive cheerleading from 2nd grade until her senior year of college. After graduation, she served as an Airborne Field Artillery Officer with the 82nd Airborne for 4 years at Fort Bragg. While at Bragg, she discovered Aerial Circus with a friend that was a former gymnast. It was love at first climb. She practiced aerial at Air Born Aerial Fitness in Fayetteville for 3 years and performed at local events with their performance troupe. After her military obligation ended in November, she moved to Charlotte and has been practicing with AerialCLT. She also practices stilts and poi, because circus is just too fun not to explore multiple disciplines! She would like to thank the Charlotte aerial community for being so welcoming, and she hopes you enjoy as her past and present collides as she returns to her cheerleading roots!
