Shayna grew up in Niskayuna, NY where she began her journey in the arts by dancing at Myers Ballet School. She then went on to Muhlenberg College where she graduated in 2016 with a BA in Dance & minor in French. Her aerial training started there and she instantly fell in love with it. Her next stop was the New England Center for Circus Arts where she continued her circus journey.
Shayna has performed in numerous venues from NYC to Iowa and back again. Most notably, Shayna performed with Phish at their 2018 New Year’s Eve concert at Madison Square Garden. She has performed all over with ABCirque Productions. Some of her other performance credits include performing aerial net with Incanto Productions at Queens Theater, many featured aerial roles with Atlas Circus Company (NYC) and featured dancer on tour with Marquise Productions, now CCIAC (Troy, NY).
Shayna has been teaching kids circus classes for more than five years and has been teaching kids dance classes for 10+ years. She is excited to come to OM Factory to continue sharing her love of all things aerial with the next generation.
