I came to circus from a lifelong practice of acrobatics.
Trained as a high level gymnast in childhood, and a diver in young adulthood, I understand that bodies are incredible. Not because of what they can or can't do, but because bodies must express themselves.
I approach teaching circus arts with training in acrobatics and a philosophy of play. Through play, guided by a supportive teacher who is a lifelong learner, you will develop a practice and learn solid technique. All my classes and workshops seek to be a consent-based, body positive, and supportive environment.

"Let me just say this...I've been around sports my entire life and have done some coaching so I have some experience with interacting with young athletes and you are truly spectacular! Well done Violet, well done!"
"Amazing teacher who knows how to make things work for your unique body and make modifications that suit your practice."
"Violet was AMAZING to work with at my event! A fabulous artist, person and performer. Looking forward to booking her at many more events in the future."
"Violet is one of the most dedicated and skilled circus teachers I have ever worked with. She approaches teaching in a light-hearted manner and always give options for different bodies/abilities. She always works to make sure everyone in class is comfortable and learning."
"Violet is also an *amazing* performer! Her contortion skills shine no matter what apparatus she approaches and of course stand alone in her floor acts as well." "I would wholeheartedly recommend Violet as both a dedicated teacher and an astounding performer!"
