SpiraLynn is a dynamic professional performer who brings creativity and strength to every performance—suspended in mid-air, she’ll spin, twist, flip, drop, dangle, and dance before your eyes! SpiraLynn is available to be booked as an aerialist for festivals, special events, corporate events, and more.
When she’s not contorting her body and pointing her toes high above an audience, she can be found instructing classes and training individual clients at inesS® Circus, the aerial circus and pilates studio that she owns and operates in downtown Halifax. She spends her off-hours with her husband, daughter, and French bulldog named Rocky.
