Under the direction of Mistia Fallon, DRAGONFLY Aerial provides performance, choreography and instruction in Silks, lyra and static trapeze.
Mistia received her Bachelor of Arts in Theatre in 1996 and returned for her Masters in dance in1998. In 1999, Mistia & her husband Matthew formed FallonMagic, Inc. with the purpose of producing Magic entertainment for the cruises ship and corporate markets. Shortly after, Mistia met national hand balancing champion and aerialist, Christine Van Loo. One night Christine brought Mistia with her to a gym in L.A. and introduced her to Cirque performers Sarah and Karyne Steben and Ivo Georgiev. Mistia knew that this was the beginning of a life long passion for aerial dance.
Since 2001, Mistia & her husband Matthew, have produced magic, Illusion and aerial acrobatic headline entertainment for cruise ships and corporate clients worldwide. Their company FallonMagic, Inc. toured nearly 45 countries with their production of "Mastering the Mystery", a combination of magic, illusion and aerial acrobatics.
Mistia has been teaching aerial since 2002 and has taught professional dancers and cruise line production casts. She has developed headline aerial entertainers, coached young gymnast/aerialists and trained mothers who simply aspire to getting their pre-baby bodies back! (Mistia is also yoga certified with an emphasis on pre-natal yoga) Mistia believes aerial dance is not just for professional movers, but for anyone with passion who wants to break through the limitations of conventional dance and fitness.
Although Matthew Fallon and Fallon Magic, Inc. continue to produce quality headline entertainment through Fallon Magic, Inc, Mistia has focused her scope to sharing her passion for aerial dance with others through the development of the Dragonfly Aerial company and works as as a consultant with Cruise Lines installing on board aerial entertainment. In February of 2017, Mistia branded the Dragonfly Aerial Company making it available as a safety focused licensing program for athletic facilities nationwide. Dragonfly is registered with the USAG and professional members of ACE. Mistia plans to open her 12th gym in
Cedar City, Utah in February of 2019.
Mistia & Matthew Fallon currently live in Colorado Springs with their 9 yr old daughter Maya and their 7 yr old son Sam.
