Kids classes teacher
‘I’ve been training and performing circus for 4 years now and teaching Kids classes at aerial art house for almost 2. I am a performer at Dair Entertainment which launched early in the year. Now that I have finished high school I hope to study music at University and continue on with my circus adventures
Member of the Company since July 2019 - wild dancer and performer inspired by different traditional dances from Africa fussed with other techniques such as improvisation, clowning and physical theatre among others. Supporter of creative ideas and experienced in working with disabled children and adults.
She came from the United States of America to study Popular Music Performance. During her first year she took up aerial art classes at Aerial Art House in order to get more core strength. She’s been training on Trapeze and silks for almost a year and has seen large improvements in power and the overall consistency of her voice while singing. While it has had a large impact on her studies it has also impacted her life positively. Making new friends in a community she never knew about while awakening and growing muscle she never thought she’d have.
Member of CirqArt c.i.c. since July 2019.
