Vanessa is an aerialist from Germany, since 2013 specialized on showacts for galas, company events, and expos. Born in Munich, she started dancing Ballet in the early age of three years old and discovered later her love and passion for acrobatics.
A four year education leading to a “Bachelor of Circus and Performance Art” at the Fontys – Academy of Circus and Performance Art in Tilburg, Netherlands confirmed the base for her passion. While still studying, she got into a nine-months contract for “EQUILA” by the renomated company Apassionata/Cavalluna and started as well working for a new Duo-Hoop act Duo "CelestialStorme" in Las Vegas.
With her acrobatic showacts in the air and on the ground, Vanessa shows high-level body control and flexibility. She is specializing on aerial silk and straps but also performing on hoop as well as contorsion acts. Worldwide unique are her Watertissue and Ashtissue-Performances, in which she creates never-seen Images with bringing new Elements in the air.
Next to the stage she is passionate about rigging and can look back to many years of teaching and coaching for diverse projects where she’s available for on request.
