"Eye Catching and Beautiful"

Shelly began her training as an artistic gymnast at the age of 6. She later switched to rhythmic gymnastics where she found the perfect sport for her natural grace and flexibility.  She eventually became a nationally ranked rhythmic gymnast and traveled the country to compete against other Level 10 gymnasts.  At fifteen, Shelly began her career in entertainment by performing contortion and rhythmic gymnastics at local events.

 Shelly now performs a variety of professional-level circus entertainment acts, including, contortion, hand-balancing, aerial silks and hoop, lollipop lyra, stilt-walking, juggling, and ribbon dancing.  She has performed on Broadway in Pippin the Musical and as part of Cirque Du Soleil's Premier of Kurios in Tysons Corner.  Audiences across the country and abroad have enjoyed her performances in productions including those with Imago Entertainment in Hong Kong, with Cirque Productions in Italy, Puerto Rico, and in the Bahamas, and with Cirque Voila in a tour across the US. D.C. area venues have included the Kennedy Center, the Verizon Center, the MGM Grand Casino, and the Gaylord National Resort and Conference Center.


Thanks again for coming on short notice. You were a total life saver. You really made Jason’s 30th birthday extra special. The look on his face was priceless! We would love to have you perform for us again soon. (Maybe for Jessica and Alexander’s wedding?!)

We loved having Shelly perform at our annual client appreciation gala this year. We were looking for something to make our event stand out from our events in the past, and she was the perfect fit! Her hand-balancing/flexibility performance in the center of our bar was eye catching and beautiful, and took our event to a whole new level.
