Susan Harkey began studying aerial dance with Blue Lapis Light in 2011 and joined the company for the production of Heaven Earth One in 2012.
Her performance background is primarily stage acting and musical theater. She alway loved to dance and acrobatics, but did not begin a formal study until adulthood, and she has since developed an all-consuming passion for learning new movement forms. She no longer acts in theater productions but finds dance to be an inspiring performance and artistic outlet. Her dance studies include aerial silks, lyra, pole, ballet, modern, hip hop, and acrobatics. She has performed with Blue Lapis Light in the productions of Heaven Earth One, Love’s Prayer, East ~ West, and In Light. She currently teaches pole dance classes at Vamps Dance Studio, works as a part-time web developer, and is pursuing her Associates in Dance from Austin Community College.
