Kristi Monson headshot.jpg

Kristi Monson grew up performing and teaching a variety of solo and partner dances, practicing several martial art forms, and writing and performing her own music on guitar and piano in addition to singing. As a dancer, her fascination with injury prevention, rehabilitation, body alignment, and correctivness led her to becoming trained and certified as a Pilates instructor, in addition to training in physical therapy, and several types of therapeutic body work and massage, as well. Her dance performance, athleticism, and biomechanics experience served as complimentary disciplines for her work as an aerialist. With over 10 years of professional aerial acrobatic performance and coaching experience (including tissu, hoop, hammock, cube, chains, straps, rope, and trapeze), Kristi is known for her aerial contortion, intense drops, seamless transitions, strength and grace. She is an active member of Cirque du Soleil's cast database as both an aerialist and vocalist. She's performed in movies and TV shows (including being featured by Cirque du Soleil on TV in the Netherlands), celebrity parties, corporate events, and concerts - including performing for Nelly Fertado and Enrique Iglesias at the Staples Center, and for Disneyland - both in the park, as well as at VIP events. Her passion and discipline for circus arts is driven by love, and shared with love.
