Ms. Cristhia "Mikah" Cuevas has always been passionate about performing. Whether it's through dance, acting, teaching or making props for productions, her heart is set on the stage.
Her journey through different styles of dance has allowed her to travel around the world and enrich her knowledge of each dance technique. She has studied Mexican Prehispanic Folk Dances in different parts of Mexico, as well as Traditional Indian Temple Dances in India such as Bharatanatyam, Odissi and Kathak, and the beautiful Pacific Island Traditional Polynesian Dances in Hawaii and Tahiti. She fell in love with Raqs Shari and began practicing Oriental Dance, where she studied under the tutelage of Nationally and Internationally known Bellydancers, enriching her already vast dance experience.
Other styles she enjoys practicing are Latin Dance (from salsa to bachata), Argentinian Tango, Westcoast Swing/Lindy Hop, Samba and African rhythms.
When Ms. Mikah first tried aerial circus arts, she fell in love with it immediately. It was incredible to believe that she could transfer all of her dance techniques and bring it up to the air, and never came down after that.
Being an elementary teacher for over 10 years, Ms. Mikah assisted to build the Kids Aerial Circus Arts Program at The Keep, where she teaches both the Kids and the Teens classes. Slowly expanding her teaching experience and instructing the Beginner and Intermediate Adult levels as well. Some of the aerial apparatus that she teaches are: Silks, Hammock, Trapeze and Lyra.
She began working on a program called "Tlajtolpapalotl Project" where she merged the beautiful traditional folk dances from Mexico and the magical enchantments of aerial arts to perform it in front of the public. Gathering her aerial circus arts groups that she taught (kids, teens and adults) she prepared a Culturally Unique Show that is seasonally presented in the studio during showcases as well as in public events and private venues.
Ms. Mikah is an aerialist, a performer and an aerial instructor and a culturally unique fusion dance teacher at Aerial Dragons Studios.
