Raven has been performing and dancing since she can remember--ballet, tap, modern, musical theater, operetta, and even Shakespeare. After never truly fitting in or feeling satisfied with those, Raven moved to Austin, Texas, where she was introduced to the unique world of circus performance! Delving into lyra, silks, pole and tumbling, Raven found her true love for physical expression. The pole community and its mindset gave her both the freedom of flying through the air as well as finally feeling comfortable in her curvy, feminine body. Teaching this self-loving, physically challenging art form to to others has truly enriched her life as a whole!
