Kelsie Young has been apart of A-WOL since 2013. She started on A-WOL’s FlyCo and just recently became a member of the company as an apprentice. Prior to A-WOL, Kelsie trained at Allegro Dance Studio in Canby, OR studying ballet, jazz, modern, and aerial. Kelsie also trained with Willamette Ballet Academy in Woodburn, OR. During the summer of 2014, she had the opportunity to attend the Annual Aerial Dance Festival in Boulder, CO. While there, she took Silk and Lyra classes under Ana Prada as well as Harness, taught by Karen Fuhrman. Kelsie loves performing and is excited to be apart of A-WOL’s company! She would like to thank all of her former instructors for helping her get where she is today.
Liz Jones, Apprentice
Liz has been moving and grooving since age 3. She has performed all over the US, and has a degree in dance, and Human Physiology from the University of Oregon. Liz was drawn to A-WOL through college and work friends in 2014. She never considered being an aerialist before going to the A-WOL auditions and now she can’t imagine life without flying.
Angela Bryant, Guest
Angela grew up in dance studios and on gymnastics floors, but her real passion was jumping rope. She performed and traveled as part of a jump rope team all through middle and high school. This is how she realized her love of the stage! Years later she took up partner acrobatics and aerial dance. As an adult she has found that these art forms feed her soul in a way that nothing else can. So much so that she has chosen the path of teacher and coach, as well as performer. She performs as an acrobat with Tempos Contemporary Circus, and is honored to be in the air as part of Awol Dance Collective!
