Megan Stern

Core Company Dancer

As a child, Megan never participated in dance or sports. Instead, her love of science and adventure compelled her to study and travel the globe. Once she earned a degree in Biology from the University of Colorado at Denver and set off to discover the world. After completing a contract working at a scientific research base in McMurdo, Antarctica she returned to Denver looking for her next conquest. In the summer of 2010 she encountered a flier for an aerial fabrics class and her life was forever changed. Since that fateful day Megan has trained, performed and taught with several Colorado based aerial groups including Aerial Fabric Acrobatics and Relevé Aerial Dance. In the past year she has expanded her aerial training to include straps, rope and the study of flexibility training. Megan particularly loves that the practice of aerial fabric allows her to explore different ways to express herself through movement. She is very excited to begin her first season with Iluminar Aerial.
