Junior Instructor – Dance Trapeze
Repertory Company Member
Lauren Liverman started flying at Canopy in December of 2007 at the encouragement of a friend. With a background in dance, gymnastics, and theatre, aerial training and performance is the perfect marriage for the little girl within, who used to ‘play’ with imaginary mythical creatures that could fly. An oncology social worker by day, Lauren finds being in the air enormously therapeutic, a way of releasing all the heaviness of the professional world into the sky (literally and figuratively). Lauren teaches beginner level adults and finds the joy her students experience from flying as pure as her own when she’s in the air. When not flying/teaching or at the hospital, Lauren likes to eat yummy food, be with friends and family, nourish her soul with worship, and laugh out loud.
