Danielle Isadora Butler is a vertical story teller. She is a performer, teacher and circus theorist. She discovered this in 2008 when her passion for creating surreal art, movement and stories converged in circus. Since then Danielle has bent her body and will to the study of aerials, hand balancing, partner acrobatics, physical theater and dance. As an accomplished aerialist Danielle combines brutish strength, seamless transitions and unique choreography in the creation of her solo tissue, rope and lyra acts. Danielle is an avid collaborator, lending her body and brain to dance, circus and photography projects, including Christine Germaine’s The Cloud Factory, Willy Woggle Circus, The Vespertine Circus and Ceilo Vertical Arts. She teaches kids and adults in the San Francisco Bay area and gives workshops across the country.
