Fiona - Aerial Silks and Aerial Hoop Instructor

I started my circus performing arts training from a young age at Wookey Hole Circus. This led me into a professional circus arts career performing and teaching workshops at many festivals and events across the UK. Over the past 2 summers I have taught circus performing arts in the US, teaching a variety of skills including aerial hoop, silks and flying trapeze. I love being able to share these amazing skills and seeing the progression others make through circus arts. Everyone can learn and take away something beneficial from the circus world which is always lovely to see.
