Growing up in Cleveland, Ohio, Beth Godshall was always the shortest girl in her class. She ate spinach as if it were candy hoping that perhaps it would help her sprout long stems. When that did not work, she started dabbling in hand held stilts. To her, stilts were the most exciting and fun toy ever to be invented, AND they made her look TALLER!!! In 2005, she began to use professional stilts.
Megan began her performance career as a competitive ice skater but then transitioned into aerial performing seven years ago. Her specialties are aerial fabric/silks, aerial chains, and aerial rope. Megan is scheduled to begin intensive circus training in July 2019 and hopes to pursue a career in aerial and circus arts.
Olivia first became intrigued by circus arts in high school and started taking classes at a local circus gym in Louisville, Kentucky. Aerial arts quickly became her passion. Olivia has been doing aerials since 2014 and performing since 2016. Her main specialties are aerial fabric and Spanish web, but she also performs on aerial sling, trapeze, aerial cube, and aerial sphere. She has performed in many circus productions and outside events with the Louisville Turners Circus as well as with other local talent groups. Olivia has her own business, Olivia Aerialist.
Over the past 8 years Samantha honed her unique aerial style by perusing movement and dance styles that challenge the perspective that your apparatus is just an object, but yet a partner. This has created performances that take audiences on a story from seductive, to passionate, to painful, to playful... She pulls you in. Currently an instructor, performer and studio manager at Elevated Aerials in Cincinnati; Samantha's style evolved from her studies of not only aerial arts in pole, aerial hoop, sling, and lollipop, but from ballroom, swing, blues, tango, contemporary, modern, and break dance.
