Sandra Scheller was a professional mime on numerous children’s television shows. She danced flamenco and taught pantomime and movement at Chula Vista SCPA and Grossmont College. In 1994, she met Vilen Golovko, the creator of The Flying Cranes Aerial Ballet from Moscow, a group that she has managed for 24 years. In 2005, Sandra began working for Cirque Du Soleil and Cirque Du Monde.
To spend more time with her mother, Ruth Sax, a Holocaust survivor, she returned to her native Chula Vista and wrote her mother’s story “Try to remember-Never forget.” With her mother, Sandra visited schools to talk about the Holocaust and created panels about it, including San Diego Comic-Con “Art During the Holocaust.” Ruth passed in December 2018, so Sandra created a documentary to continue telling Ruth’s story. Sandra continues visiting schools and organizations and still works for The Flying Cranes.
