Performance

Add the beauty and skill of live performance to your event with circus artistry. Meghan juggles all shapes and sizes of objects from plastic pears to flames and knives. Stilts, diabolo, unicycle, slackrope, poi, acro-balance, accordion, single point trapeze, clarinet and clown round out her repetoire. In her stage acts, circus props are everyday objects, and daily routines become a work of art and play. Through circus arts, the performer weaves music and skill into a story about being human. Her one woman solo show is called "The Music Box", which debuted at Out North in January of 2009.

Performance

Instruction

Mix equal parts juggling, tumbling, clowning and fun! Juggling enhances hand-eye coordination and expands peripheral awareness. Acro-balance and tumbling puts the body in space, and expands our physical and mental boundaries. Clown communicates these skills to an audience, and helps the audience recognize the inherent skills that each of us have as we move through the day.
