Molly Baechtold

Molly first stepped onto the stage at the age of four performing the “barnyard boogie” at a local dance recital in NH.  As a painfully shy kid, she found her passion through physical expression.  She continued her career of dance and musical theatre through college, performing with the UNH Dance Company and summerstock theatre in Maine and NH.  While in college, she took to the air at the UNH aerial program and never looked back.  

Molly performs and teaches aerial arts full time.  She has been a member of the Boston University faculty for four years, as well as several circus schools in the Boston area.  Her performances have ranged from Cirque du Soliel’s anniversary celebration in Times Square, to arena concerts at colleges across the country.  Molly is thrilled to share her art with audiences large and small.  Through her teaching Molly focuses on building a community where students feel safe to explore their artistic side and are empowered to make and achieve new goals.
