Colleen started her aerial career at the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts training fabric, rope, trapeze and lyra. Throughout her time in Philadelphia, she would frequent various circus schools around the country to broaden her scope of learning. This practice allowed her to gain versatility in her aerial movement, something she still presently values.
In 2016 she made her move to San Francisco where she would promptly become Aerial Artique’s Studio Manager and Instructor. Her role in the circus arts evolved as her ambitions did, to taking on a Director position at Kinetic Arts Center and choreographing group performances for San Francisco aerialists. Blending these roles with her captivating performing abilities, and Colleen’s passion for aerial is hard to miss.
In 2019 she said goodbye to San Francisco when she accepted a contract to teach and perform in Dublin, Ireland. She presently resides in this location and teaches weekly classes and speciality workshops at Aerial Cirque.
