Disa grew up in rural Wisconsin in the heartland of the US, and remains to this day a country girl at heart. Her first sojourn into the air was at age ten, when she started taking classes with a local aerial dance troupe in Madison, WI. She quickly decided that playing in the air and making people smile was the life for her, so after high school she packed up and headed to circus school in the UK. Since then, her performing career has taken her around the world and has included appearances with Zippo’s Circus in the UK and Rambo Circus in India. Disa is quite convinced that she has the best job in the world.
