Mary-Margaret has been dedicated to aerial dance for the last eleven years. With a strong athletic history as a varsity athlete at York University and a dedication to explore, Mary-Margaret has brought a new vitality to static trapeze, an under utilized apparatus. She has participated in large scale durational work such as Glaciology and Cascades with Anandam Dancetheatre, both which were highlights of Nuit Blanche. For her own work, she has performed extensively in Toronto with unique acts such as Henry, a friendly alien that turns aerial dance upside down; Cirque-It, a mix of technology, fashion and performance; and the Starlight Wish Foundation on triple trapeze. Her creative outlook has been significantly influenced by her training in a variety of forms, apparatuses and with a variety of trainers.
