Lani Corson is an aerialist, variety and musical theatre performer based in NYC. She has been performing professionally as an aerialist since 2010 and instructing since 2013 at Aerial Arts NYC, Body & Pole and as an adjunct professor at Pace University.  


After receiving her BFA in Musical Theatre from Syracuse University, she was introduced to aerial arts – an extension of dance with an element of excitement.  What began as a hobby quickly became a passion, and an invitation to explore what could become of mixing genres spiraled into a new career path. She is a member and owner of NYC-based company 2 Ring Circus and has had the pleasure of performing across the US and the world with other companies such as Phoenix Entertainment, ImaginAerial, Cirque Central and in NYC at such venues as The Slipper Room, The Box and Diamond Horseshoe to name a few. 


Lani has been featured in countless productions across the globe in such shows as Seussical (Mayzie La Bird at CFRT), The Wizard Of Oz (Glinda/Aunt Em at Syracuse Stage), Sister Act (Mary Robert at Westchester Broadway), Godspell (Animal Trainer at Arkansas Rep), Ariel (The Little Mermaid at CFRT), 42nd Street (International Tour), Legally Blonde (North Shore Music Theatre), Les Miserables (Riverside Theatre), State Fair (Stages St. Louis), CATS (Ogunquit Playhouse), among others.
