Aileen grew up in New Jersey and studied theatre in NYC, developing a passion for performance and acting. A decade ago she discovered the Flow Arts, delving into the practice of Poi, Contact Staff, and Levitation Wand. Her exploration with object manipulation encouraged deeper studies of varied dance modalities. Blending technical proficiency and a very unique style into her performance, she has established herself as a highly sought-after instructor and performer at countless festivals in the worldwide Flow Arts community. She has conducted workshops throughout the US and Rome, France, Canada & the UK, and has appeared in numerous instructional Flow Arts DVD’s.
