Shelby McCahon

Shelby is an Alaskan aerialist who started her circus journey in 2017 in the Aurora Aerial Arts club at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. She was instantly captivated by the beauty and challenge of aerial silks, and helped introduce this art to others through the club by helping teach students for two years. She loves helping students learn how to fly and express their creativity while growing and challenging themselves, and is super excited to be teaching at Aerial View!


Outside of aerial arts, Shelby is a wildlife researcher, specializing in avian ecology. In her free time she enjoys hiking, backpacking, photography, yoga, and exploring.
