Growing up dancing and experimenting with gymnastics, Morgana first became interested in the circus world in college when she took her first pole dance class. Within a year she began performing on pole. Having caught both the circus bug and the performing bug, Morgana started training on a variety of aparatuses.
Today, as a professional aerialist in Washington DC, she performs on Straps, Silks, Cloud Swing, Lyra, Trapeze, Rope, Cube, Chandelier, Lollipop Lyra and, of course, Pole. With a constant focus on bringing something new to the stage, of her many titles, the ones she is most proud of are Miss Originality awarded for blindfolded pole routine, and Master of Amazement, awarded for her fire/aerial fusion act: “Phoenix”
Not only does she compete both domestically and internationally, winning her first world championship title in 2015, but she has also been offered domestic and international tours and was recently accepted as a performer and instructor to Club Med’s prestigious “Creactive by Cirque Du Soleil” program. Her credits include everything from Vegas casinos, to festivals, to fitness expos.
Morgana’s love for circus arts goes beyond her aerial work. She is also a stilt performer. As a fairy, an Amazon, a mythical princess or any other of her many characters, she enjoys entertaining children and bringing a little magic to lives of others. And, never one to settle for what has been done before, Morgana now combines fire performance with her stilt walking.
Having grown up around horses, Morgana toured with The World Horse Expo as a trick rider, and performs in the only bareback and bridleless trick riding show in the country: The Jeff and Coca show. From rodeos to birthday parties, the Jeff and Coca show brings heart-stopping acrobatics and horsemanship skills, exemplifying the bond of trust and understanding between rider and steed.
And if something a little more dangerous is more your taste, witness her heart-stopping bullwhip act. Expert skill and dexterity come together with dance, sprinkled with the distinctive crack only a bullwhip can provide.
Since her childhood spent playing in the carribean waters, Morgana has always been drawn to the sea. Today she is one of the top mermaid performers and models in the mid-Atlantic. A certified diver, Morgana performs in a stunning, color changing, five foot custom silicon tail.
Morgana is a published, up-and-coming, model. She does both print and promotional modeling, with or without aerial aparatus. With experience in fashion, catalogue and editorial styles, her specialties include, aerial, underwater and stilt work.
