Jenny has been launching herself artistically off the ground since catching the flying trapeze bug while studying in New York in 2010. Deciding that a job in her academic field of study (politics) sounded exceptionally un-fun, she proceeded to live in 7 countries across three continents taking jobs as an assistant editor, a live-in nanny, an English teacher, a university administrator, and a full-time dog walker. These occupations allowed her time to pursue a patchwork education in circus across various institutions including Circus Warehouse (NYC), Circus Oz (Melbourne), and Centro Acrobatico Fedriani (Madrid), alongside participation in innumerable private lessons, workshops, and festivals.
While she’s tried her hand at just about everything, aerial hoop is Jenny’s primary discipline followed closely by aerial spiral and her invented apparatus ‘the infineight,’ made in collaboration with metalworker Tim Omspach. She has also performed aerial harness/vertical dance, spanish web, aerial chains, hula hoops, and straps. She might do verticals if you pay her a lot of money, and she is a born 3-high middle. Jenny is a US citizen and aspiring permanent resident of Ireland, and when not on tour, can be found snuggling her two giant dogs on the coast of county Sligo. You can find her all over the internet under the name @circlecirque.
