Sommer has never conformed to expectations; she redefines them! As a fiercely independent, curious and competitive child, she excelled in martial arts as well as classical flute; she adored both calculus and foreign languages; she attended Catholic school but wore only black.
While completing her masters degree in computer science at Stanford University, Sommer’s diverse passions for the arts and athletics began to evolve into aerial performance. Fusing both the left and right sides of her brain, she learned to climb, twist and fall with the curiosity of a child, power of a gymnast and the precision of an engineer.
Today, Sommer combines her musicality, strength and attention to detail as an aerialist on tissú and vertical rope. Expect only the unexpected as she weaves stories from the fabric of life we all share.
Specializing in tissú and vertical rope, I fuse my diverse backgrounds in classical flute, martial arts and engineering, to bring powerful stories to life on stage.
