Lea is a UI designer by day and an aerial performer and instructor by later that day. Based out of Durham NC, Lea first discovered her love of performing as a dancer, training in multiple disciplines for 18 years. Five years ago she stumbled across an aerial sling class and has been hopelessly obsessed with the aerial and circus world ever since. Lea loves using aerial arts to bring her dance skills to new heights (literally) and exploring new movement possibilities. Three years ago she leveled up to instructor and is so excited to share her love for all things sling, silks, and loops with the students at Pura Vida Studio in Cary, NC.
