Marcy Gallardo - Director and Owner

Working mostly as a choreographer for various projects in the entertainment industry, I managed to lift my dancers to higher and higher heights……literally. As my tech- rehearsals became more and more complex, my technical director kindly pointed out to me that I was turning his theatre into a circus………

Imagination Circus Arts is the culmination of 19 years experience as a performer, teacher, consultant, and guest lecturer in the performing arts. I am currently the owner and director of Imagination Circus Arts. I spent 12 years working at the Sports and Arts center at Island Lake in Pennsylvania, where I acted as the program director for their acclaimed circus arts department, as well as the artistic coordinator for the circus, theatre and dance departments combined. I have worked in the US and England as a certified teacher of the performing arts since 1992, and have since choreographed over 200 musicals, halftime shows, circus acts and competitive routines. I began coaching circus arts here in Colorado in 1999, and have spent the last 11 years performing and creating theatrical circus shows for private and corporate events.


I have been recognized for my excellence in youth programming, and continue to perform in the aerial arts. My many years of working as an artistic consultant, have given me the opportunity to work with a variety of organizations, including: Stunt Dynamics, Red Rocks Entertainment, and the Daytime Emmy Awards.My circus performance company, Imagination! Circus factory was the first of it’s kind in Denver and has been a part of some of the most memorable corporate events since. Some of the many credits include, Platinum Ball, Cinderella Ball and Busch Gardens. Besides performing with my own company, I have also been invited to perform with many others, including Cirque Sublime, Club Med, and Universal Studios.
