Guest Artist
Substitute/Guest Aerial Instructor
Co-Founder Volary Aerial Burlesque

Katie Duman’s first encounter with the aerial arts came at a drop-in tissu class in Portland, OR, just hours prior to boarding an airplane to move to Honolulu, Hawai’i. Immediately entranced by the beauty and grace of aerial, she watched Samadhi Hawai’i perform at the Hawai’i State Art Museum upon her arrival on the islands.

One year from that day, she performed as a student with the company as one half of a trapeze duo. Two years from that day, she performed as a company member, fulfilling a dream of hers. Formerly an NCAA Division 1 athlete, most of Katie’s movement technique reflects her generalist athletic background.

Katie performs trapeze with Samadhi Hawai’i and Volary Aerial Burlesque, and teaches trapeze and tissu classes with the Samadhi Aerial School when she is in town. In her “other” life, Katie works as an environmental scientist with a local consulting firm. She is immensely happy to have the opportunities to learn, teach, and perform with Samadhi.
