I studied cyr wheel at the National Circus School in Montréal and graduated in 2016. I like cyr wheel because I can blend acrobatics and dance. As it’s a relatively new discipline, I’ve found many opportunities to create new movement vocabulary with my wheel.

I took these photos in my aunt’s garden in Austria. Her dog, Jansen, was happy to help as long as he didn’t have to do anything more than lie in the shade and pant.
It’s a relatively easy walk to this beautiful 17m waterfall in Gortipohl, Austria. Park by the goat barn. Stop at the wooden seesaw in the rustic playground. Enjoy some fresh bread and Bergkäse at the picnic spot and hike up over the meadow. However, most people don’t take this hike while carrying a cyr wheel.

I take my cyr wheel on adventures. I’ve learned to get out of the way when farmers come through on their tractors.
Remnants of a medieval wall still surround the town of Bludenz, Austria, which was founded in the mid-13th century and was once part of the far-flung Hapsburg empire.
