Steph caught the circus bug by kismet. When she was just 19, Steph had a friend who did circus for fun. Curious about such a different activity, Steph asked her friend about it. Her friend, Bree, suggested she do a free trial at Flipside Circus, which Steph did and she was completely hooked! From that first terrifying time hanging from a trapeze, she has never looked back. Now-a-days, Steph trains all kinds of aerial circus including silks, lyra, and swinging, flying and static trapeze.
Steph is a bit of a multipotentialite. She’s completed a Certificate IV in Patisserie, pursued a secondary teaching degree as well as a physiotherapy degree. The teaching and physiotherapy study supports her current passion and career as an aerials and circus instructor across multiple Brisbane circus schools. The patisserie course makes her very popular at Trix Circus, especially at morning tea!
Steph takes circus teaching very seriously. Inspired to be a dedicated circus arts teacher, not primarily a circus artist who teaches by default, she is enrolled in the Instructor’s diploma at the world’s leading circus school, the prestigious Ecole Nationale de Cirque. In mid-2023 Steph will take the journey to the home of contemporary circus, Montreal, to complete her onsite training at Ecole Nationale de Cirque.
Trix is so lucky to have Steph on our team. She brings a willingness, a meticulousness and an eagerness to learn that is invaluable to us. We can’t imagine our workplace without her efficiency, kindness, compassion and care.
