Danielle Rueda-Watts

Danielle Rueda-Watts started her career as an aerial acrobat after graduating art school with a degree in fine art photography. With her back ground as a competitive gymnast, along with years of dance and yoga, the transition to becoming a professional aerialist was natural. Danielle can be seen on silk in the "razzle dazzle" scene in the hit movie musical Chicago, as well as being the featured aerialist in the documentary of Michael Jackson's final tour, This is it. Danielle has been in two different Cirque du Soleil productions; the cabaret style Zumanity and the Beatles show Love. Believing her journey as an acrobat is something that continually evolves, Danielle's repertoire has grown from her first love - silk - to include hoop, rope, straps, hammock, trapeze, pole and hand to hand balancing. Danielle currently performs at Light Nightclub by Cirque du Soleil.
