interview with Corey Cheval: Battling lockdowns to give at-risk youths a place to be

Corey Cheval talks about how she was once a wayward teen, and how she’s incorporated the life lessons that dance taught her into the classes and workshops she teaches today.

Corey Cheval is the owner of Gainesville Circus Center in Florida, which offers classes in aerial silks, flying trapeze, lyra, acro-dance and other styles. An almost equal passion for Corey is working with at-risk youth – those with low socio-economic status, or those facing disadvantages due to race and gender, and who stand to benefit the most from involvement with the arts. Corey and I talked about how she was once a wayward teen, and how she’s incorporated the life lessons that dance taught her into the classes and workshops she teaches today. This became very challenging to do in 2020 when forced to hold smaller classes and virtual classes, but she continues to fight on to ensure her students have a place to be and something to belong to, while the rest of world is turned upside-down.
