“It is an honor and a pleasure to work with Alicia Cutaia and Russ Stark. Alicia is fantastically energetic, and Russ is present and responsive. Both are consummate professionals, deeply knowledgeable in their fields, and regularly challenge and inspire their students towards greater artistry and skill.”

— Kari Jay Hunter, Circus Project Lead Coach

“I worked with Alicia in choreographing my latest aerial piece and she was integral to its success. She helped me open up into a new way of moving on the trapeze, rooted in dance, that was still authentic to my movement style. I absolutely recommend working with her if you want to break out of your own movement habits and go into a wild new limitless territory. She is a gifted teacher and act coach.”
