Current Company Members

Past Company Members


The Repertory Company  is one of the Southeast’s premier professional aerial dance companies. The Repertory Company is the group of adults who serve as one of the creative engines of the studio and furthers Canopy’s mission through performance, service and ambassadorship, and instruction. We believe everything we do as a company should directly reflect, support, and uplift the studio’s purpose.

Susan Murphy brought aerial dance to us from her years at Berkeley. The Repertory Company was Susan’s dancers to put her choreography on. We were her artistic vision come to life. Then as her children, we grew up and took the work further, making it our own then teaching it to our growing student base. We’re the next generation of aerial dance artists.

The Repertory Company was always meant to be the professional performance company of our very specific type of aerial dance – at that time uncommon in the aerial world. In the beginning we were just dancers, and because we wanted to push Susan’s work further, we became leaders within Canopy.  It’s born out of love – intimate, personal, passionate, and moving – we’re deeply connected as movers to this work. It’s what makes Canopy different from most every other studio you’ll ever walk into. 

Repertory Company Members represent the following pillars:


The Repertory Company is the creative force in the studio, not only pushing our own boundaries, but also championing the creative process in our students and instructors.


As the resident performance company for the studio, the Repertory Company advances performance at all levels at Canopy, supporting the studio as a much needed venue for viewing and participating in performance.


The Repertory Company is the driving force behind instruction and continuing education and a resource for organizing curriculum and dissemination of info/progressions/best practices out to all teachers.


Members of the Repertory Company are the face of the studio in the community.  Members have a strong belief that they are a part of something larger than themselves with an eye to always find ways to elevate Canopy in the community.
