Danya Xena is a full-time traveling acro teacher who creates supportive, safe, collaborative and fun learning environments. With a focus on dynamic acrobatics she encourages everyone’s inner Super Heroes by offering a community feeling with great progressions and awesome spotting. As a mid-weight acrobat she is both a base and a flyer, and as such, has a great understanding of both sides of the practice.
Danya is the founder of the SuperHero Circus Academy (home of the Acro SuperHeroes), FemPower Acro, co-founded the Canadian Acro Intensive as well as Justice Movement and has taught in over 100 communities in 8 countries (and counting).
Danya leads the Acro And Social Justice Teacher Training program and brings with her a career in adult education, coaching and facilitation, a deep passion for social justice, and a Masters degree in Diversity Studies with a focus on pedagogy (the art and science of teaching).
