Miranda “That Circus Freak” – Australia
Right from when she was tiny, Miranda loved to throw herself about. She was that kid in the ballet class that did 3 spins when everybody else did 1. Inevitably she moved into gymnastics as well, and finally diving.
Then one fateful day she went to the circus and fell in love. A timetabling issue at cirucs school meant she couldn’t get into the tumbling class and ended up in an aerial class instead – and her fate was sealed. What a wonderful way to fly through the air with the greatest of ease!
After trying out the various aerial equipment, she got up on the hoop and it was a match made in heaven. Her passion (obsession?) has continued unabated since then, her determination to conquer just about anything that’s possible on hoop pushing her onwards. As a result she now has a dizzying portfolio of drops and dynamic moves.
She loves to share her passion with as many people as she can, so they too can feel the excitement and sense of achievement in mastering a new move and reaching their goals!
