Get to know Rochelle...


Rochelle has been a performer for most of her life. After taking her first ballet class when she was five years old, Rochelle instantly fell in love with dance. She was also interested in rhythmic gymnastics: she loved the combination of ballet, flexibility, and stamina in this sport. Later, Rochelle decided to fully commit her training to ballet. Rochelle trained and performed with many different ballet companies in southern California until she was 18. After high school, Rochelle trained and performed professionally with Joffrey Ballet (New York City), and Bolshoi Ballet (Moscow).

After returning to California, Rochelle received her B.A. in Psychology and Child Development from San Diego State University. She also competed on her school’s nationally ranked dance team for two years.

In 2013, Rochelle discovered the circus arts and has been in love ever since. Her background in ballet and rhythmic helped make for a smooth transition into the aerial world. She loves the lyra (aerial hoop) most out of all the apparatus and enjoys training and performing with it. 

Rochelle coached at a rhythmic gymnastics gym in San Diego for three years and soon after, started teaching flexibility classes at circus gyms in San Diego. 

Currently, Rochelle is the flexibility/stretching coach at Aerial Revolution in San Diego and San Diego Circus Center. She also is the ballet teacher at Champion Rhythmics in San Diego.

Rochelle loves sharing her knowledge of flexibility with people of all different levels and backgrounds. No matter if you have never stretched before in your entire life, or you have a strict stretching regimen,  Rochelle is here to help make your stretching goals become a reality!
