Chantel Durelli gets her experience as a circus instructor in every direction. As a stunt girl and commercial actress, spokesperson and fitness model in Los Angeles for the past 19 years, Chantel was exposed to many ground-breaking movement arts. Her experiences as a Celebrity Personal Trainer (ACSM, NASM, NCCPT, and ACE certified), aerial instructor, fire poi instructor, massage and physical therapist assistant has earned her the right to say that she truly knows the body and what it is capable of. When it comes to Circus, she has trained at all the “stunt hubs” for the past 11 years and has gotten to know most of the circus and stunt people in Tinsel Town. Along with booking independent jobs as an aerialist and fire-poi dancer, she performed with CIrque Berzerk for four years well before she started her own circus talent agency/production company and Mermaid/SeaCreature Performance Troupe. She has an aerial, pole and fire training facility in her backyard where she and many others train. Most importantly, Chantel has a deep love for the art of circus and is inspired to see the genre grow especially here on the Big Island where it is fresh and new! She is committed to teaching her students all she knows with safety, patience and grace.
