Daniela is the owner, founder, and principal instructor for Springfield Aerial Fitness. Daniela has danced & performed with Brittney Banaei and Phenomenon Dance Company since 2005 as well as Springfield Dance Alliance since 2011. When she discovered aerial arts 3 years ago, her fascination quickly grew to an obsession. She began traveling around the United States and studying as much as she could in order to bring back quality education that her instructors could be proud of.
She got her teacher certification from Aircat Aerial Arts in Boulder Circus School in August 2016 and has gotten to train with world renowned performers such as Tanya Burka, Rain Anya, Waverly Jones, Sarah Romanowski, Teo Spencer and the team at Frequent Flyers.
As with rock climbing, aerial arts serve as a method to train her body, mind and spirit. Her passion is to find stillness, map fears, crush limiting beliefs and connect to one’s higher self through movement. Her favorite part about sharing her aerials is watching this process happen in others and noticing how it effects change in other aspects of their lives.
Brittany is our Circus Kids, Handstands and Trapeze & Lyra Instructor. Brittany’s passion for acrobatics started at three years old when she first discovered gymnastics. She was a competitive gymnast for ten years and coached gymnastics for seven years. She discovered Aerial Arts in 2013 while living in San Diego and hasn’t stopped learning since. It is an art form that enables her to express her faith and continue pursuing acrobatics in her adult life.
