Alex Allan

Originally from Sydney, Australia, Alex moved to San Francisco in 2009 to train in Circus Center’s Professional Aerial Program. Since graduating in 2011 Alex has worked as a choreographer and an aerialist with companies such as Teatro Zin Zanni, Acrobatic Conundrum and Zaccho Dance Theatre. As a coach, Alex works closely with his students to facilitate an embodied understanding of efficient movement pathways and dynamic aerial technique. He also has a deep passion for aiding his students in the development of their own authentic movement quality. In his 10 years as a coach Alex has taught workshops in Europe, Asia, Australia and North America, most recently completed a workshop tour of the U.S. covering 30 studios in 15 states. Influenced by his background in theatre, Alex is committed to the art of storytelling. He seeks to explore and present the human experience, believing in the potential of movement to convey that which words cannot. His extensive education in theatre, circus and dance has inspired him to blend the boundaries of these physical mediums, creating a unique style of performance. Alex is currently in collaboration with renowned NY choreographer Mike Esperanza.
