DANA ABRASSART

You know that feeling of finding that thing you never knew you needed? That glorious, epiphanic moment when your heart shouts ‘YES!?’ For Dana, that moment came after her first feeble attempt to climb a silk. A lifetime athlete, she instantly fell in love with not only the intense physicality, but the novel challenge of conscious body movement. Since that day in the humble Brooklyn warehouse known as House of Yes, she has been on a mission to understand all things movement. As a performer, she regularly swings solo and collaboratively (Lady Circus, Urban Circus) in public and private venues in NYC. Her preferred methods of dangling include silks, rope, cloud swing and chains.

 

Teaching has quickly become one of Dana’s foremost passions. As a former scientist, she has adopted a teaching style that lends itself to both logic & creativity: Learn the language in order to compose your poetry. She very well understands the challenges facing all levels of flyers and delights in seeing her students progress and better understand their bodies. Teaching has taken Dana around the globe including New York, Brazil, Cambodia and the Virgin Islands.
