Claire – Aerial Silk & Hoop | Bristol| South West| UK


From the age of five to fifteen Claire trained as a top level competitive gymnast where her natural flexibility and elegance was often remarked upon. She also has a free-standing aerial rig that is completely mobile.

She then pursued her interest in music playing both flute and harp to a high standard and obtained a degree in the subject. However the opportunity to return to sport presented itself when Claire successfully auditioned for the main aerial show in the Millennium Dome.

Claire is a highly skilled and experienced performer whose acrobatic and aerial work had amazed audiences all over the world. Her beautiful flexibility and athleticism combine to create stunning work and her unique versatility means she has an act for almost all events. Claire’s skills include silks, acrobalance, hoops and bungee belles.

A solo silks performance Helix features Claire rising from the ground winding within and around the silks, looping them around her body to create beautiful contortions. Performed with an exceptional fluidity of movement and energy, as well as spectacular deeps and effortless climbs, Helix is an engaging and inspiring piece.
