ABOUT

Elizabeth Stich is an aerial artist who crafts elegant lines and dynamic musicality into moving experiences for audiences nationwide. Elizabeth has an extensive background in ballet and contemporary dance and trained in fabric, rope, and trapeze at New England Center for Circus Arts. A versatile performer, she is equally at home on the concert dance stage and in less conventional settings—soaring over water in Sea World’s Cirque de la Mer, dodging BMX riders in All Wheel Sports Extreme, and suspended from Corona Arch at sunrise.

 

As a choreographer, Elizabeth uses the aerial apparatus as metaphor to explore the potency of personal experience and to expand the potential for human movement and expression. She is also an enthusiastic educator, emphasizing functional anatomy and individual agency in her teaching. Elizabeth is an Assistant Professor of Dance at Dixie State University in southern Utah where she specializes in developing aerial dance curriculum in higher education.
