Molly Baechtold

Molly began her performance career at the young age of 5, when she enrolled in her first dance class. She brought her passion for dance and musical theatre with her to the University of New Hampshire in 2005, where she began her journey into the art of aerial dance. There she studied static trapeze and silks intensively and performed with the UNH dance company for four years. Since graduating, she has performed in musicals at several regional theatres, trained with Cirque Du Soleil's Ivo Georgiev in New York City, and danced in Times Square for Cirque Du Soleil's 25th anniversary celebration. She shares her love for aerial arts by performing with her partner, Erin Sullivan in
Airly Acrobatics , and performing with the Solstice Circus. Molly is currently teaching circus arts at trapeze school New York.
