Summer’s journey to the stage began with a childhood love of gymnastics, and a discovery of aerial arts and dance in college. Within a few short years she went from passionate novice to a highly sought after performer and instructor. In 2012 she dazzled millions of television viewers when she reached the top 100 on “America’s Got Talent.” Host Howie Mandel described her act as «both dangerous and very original.»
With specialties including Aerial Chains, Aerial Hoop, Silks and Dance Trapeze, Summer has been seen in flight at The Economist Magazine’s World in 2013 Gala, the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards and appeared in the off-Broadway show «La Soiree». In 2018 she was a featured performer in the Circus Abyssinia show «Ethiopian Dreams» during their residency at the New Victory Theater. She is a member of the Dzul Dance Company, Constellation Moving Company, Loki Circus Theater, and is one-third of «La Cage Trio», a one-of-a-kind aerial cage troupe. Her first performance with Dzul Dance was in 2016 with Rites of Passage.
Summer embodies each performance with an expression of joyful intensity, seeking to inspire her audience to re-imagine what they think is possible, and embrace her mission to, “stand up, stand out and create something beautiful.”
In addition to performing, Summer is a resident instructor at Circus Warehouse and Body & Pole in NYC, where she works alongside the industry’s best, teaching aerial dance to future circus stars!
