Shaly is a third generation violinist who has been studying and performing since the age of two. She has performed in a wide array of venues and genres, from performing with a strolling string group in Disneyland to recording the cast album for an original musical score to extensive chamber and orchestral experience, Shaly has done it all.
After studying and working in the fields of theatre and dance throughout high school and into her education at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, Shaly discovered that her true passion for performing flourished most 20 feet in the air. She has studied extensively in the Bay Area, as well as traveling as far as The Dominican Republic for advanced aerial training. She continues to train extensively in the aerial arts while teaching at two well-known circus training facilities in Oakland, CA. She loves teaching and is constantly in awe of all that she learns from her students. Shaly offers a variety of workshops covering a wide range of levels and can be focused on anything from vocabulary and technique to performance and choreography.
Shaly has performed in a variety of venues, from historical buildings at elaborate parties to her very own warehouse living room for her closest friends. Safety is a high priority for Shaly and she will work extensively with the client to ensure that her act is not only awe-inspiring but also safe for the audience, the venue, and herself. A rigging consultation will be included in bookings. Costumes and music choices can be customized for your event to ensure the performance is perfect for any occasion.
