Meet the Teacher: Krystyn Tsagarakis

Meet Core Instructor Krystyn Tsagarakis.

Krystyn Tsagarakis has been teaching empowerment and confidence to students of all levels and ages since 2010. She believes that aerial and circus arts are for everyone. Her introduction to dance began through ballet at the age of three. Her background includes five years of competitive gymnastics, seven years of performance art, and thirteen years of visual art.

Her passion for movement eventually led her to discover circus art, where she fell in love with aerial fabric. While she specializes in aerial fabric and dance trapeze, she is trained in lyra, and aerial sling & hammock. She is the co-founder of Aerial Athlete. In 2014, she completed a seven-month Artistic Residency at NECCA. She has completed aerial arts teacher trainings with NECCA, Paper Doll Militia, Born to Fly, and Urban Fertility Dancer. She is a certified group fitness instructor through the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA). When Krystyn is not coaching at Actors Gymnasium, she can be found teaching workshops all over the country.

Sometimes We Workshop!

There are so many different movement backgrounds that there isn’t enough time during the year to fully study everything in depth, but through workshops, we get to try out a much larger variety of physicality and apparatus. For example, last week we had a breakdancing workshop with Dan Gibson who talks about the connection between breakdance and circus!
