Megan Hornaday

Megan's background is in classical ballet and trained in aerial arts with Rachel Bowman (Cirque du Soleil), and in contortion with Jonathan Nosan (SF Circus School). She specializes in silks, lyra, cloudswing, and chains. She has performed at The Box, Webster Hall, House of Yes, Soho House, Lavo, Cipriani's, Soho Grand, and at corporate & private events across the country. She has done concert/touring/ commercial work for Lionel Richie, Paul McCartney, Ultra Music Festival, Beyonce, Target, Kohl's, and Bandier, as well as performing & choreographing for Lady Gaga's ArtRave.


She currently performs with her aerial partner, Nolan McKew, and choreographs for her aerial dance company Animal Mechanical.
