Summer Yates

I’ve been playing in the air for about 22 months

I perform for myself really…every time I am in the air I learn something new about myself and this keeps me going.

It has helped me connect to myself emotionally and explore who I am and what I want from my life. It has given me a new love for myself and my body and has humbled me. I find I can look at life with such joy and I think that comes from being able to express myself in an artistic way every day.

Circus isn’t just a sport…it’s a place of freedom, creative and beauty. Every acrobatic lives with a passion that can be felt in everything we do. It is also something that ANYONE can learn to do!

Outside of cirque, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our furbabies. I also love to sing, draw and write.
