Gala Orba

By day Gala teaches high school math and manages vacation rentals. By night she dances. She picked up the hula hoop at the Full Moon fire gathering at Montrose beach with friends in chicago back in 2005 and thus began her descent into the magical world of the circus arts. Traditionally trained in ballet from a young age she hoops, plays with fire fans, flags in UV and regular light, loves partner acroyoga, and does aerial dance. She also dabbles in partner dancing in such styles as salsa and jazz. Give her a good lead and watch how gracefully she follows. Recently she has decided to incorporate her dear pet Perseus, a 4 ft ball python, into her art. She loves to collaborate and group pieces often bring out the best in her. Duets are her favorite especially on hammock, trapeze, lyra, acro, or on the dancefloor.
