COACHING STAFF for 2023 Festival
Acro Choreography for Acts
Katarina Danks is a dancer, educator, coach/trainer and world-class performer trained in contortion, jazz and contemporary dance. Her performances are nothing short of eye-popping. Blending an artistic mix of body-bending contortion skills (she’s accomplished in Mongolian, European and contemporary contortion) with jazz and contemporary dance choreography and stage presence, Kat creates unique shapes in elegant inverted ways. She has appeared at numerous venues throughout Southwest Florida, including Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre (with Circus Transformus), Art Walks the Runway Fashion Show at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center and at the Fort Myers Film Festival’s T.G.I.M. screenings.
During her five-week tour of venues throughout Germany and Australia, she performed at well-attended variety shows produced by Ska Von Schoning’s Showbiz Productions, which now hosts contortion conventions and competitions in Las Vegas and other locations in the United States.
Since turning professional, Kat has won numerous awards in various recreational and professional competitions for performance, technique, stage presence, choreography, and the difficulty of her routines. She has performed for Showbiz Productions, National Geographic, Royal Hanneford Circus, International Contortion Convention, and Que Noche for Telemundo.
Juggling & Utter Silliness
From Las Vegas to Dubai, Nerdy Noah's unique interpretation of the art of juggling will bring him fame and fortune. Genius like this is rarely appreciated until it's too late. But luckily, you're ahead of the curve; one of the few to recognize that these zany stunts are perfect for ages 1 - 100! You're under 100 right? GOOD, because this show is sure to shock and awe anyone who gets too close when Noah juggles tazers. You want singing and dancing? Well, sorry, that's tomorrow night... but if you want to have a duel with a man on a mini-bicycle, you're in the right place! So what are you waiting for? Tuck in your shirt, brush that tooth, and come get Nerdy!
