Born in Los Angeles, and transplanted to Maine, Claudia Laguardia has been singing and acting for as long as she can remember. After acting in neighborhood shows with the Knights in Alfred, and performing in all the school shows, she started her own company, “The Twilight Players”, in her backyard at the age of 14. She studied theater and directing at Columbia College in 2007, and returned to Maine to finish her Bachelors in Philosophy and Holistic Health. While at USM, she took a course called Aerial Dance, taught by Jeanette Fertig of The Appratus Dance Company, which changed her life. She took to the air, performing aerial dance and fire dancing routines at festivals, parties, and corporate events for nine years. In 2014. she directed a Kids Circus Camp for a weekend in Hartford, Maine. She is excited to be collaborating with the Nevaeh Dance Circus, dancing and singing as always.
