Touring internationally in the circus from the age of 15, she has gained performance experience as a contortionist, dancer and acrobat during the past 10 years.
She has performed in the United States for Disney and Universal Studios, in Singapore for Discovery TV, aboard P&O cruise liners, and at major arts festivals across Australia. She has also worked with numerous circus companies.
Since developing his show in 2000, Eric The Red has toured across Australia, New Zealand and France with his original set of juggling tricks and balancing feats.
His wide-ranging experience includes arts and music festivals, agricultural shows, markets, street performances, private functions and corporate events.
Circus Extravaganza is a fundraising event, with all proceeds going to Kyabram P-12 College Chaplaincy.
