Vanessa began her circus training 13 years ago when she learned how to fly the trapeze. She first taught and performed across the US with Trapeze Experience for 3 years. Vanessa arrived back to her hometown of Stoney Creek and walked into the doors of Zacada shortly after they opened. Vanessa has been coaching aerial and circus arts since 2007. She has performed the static trapeze, cube and skipping. She is trained to teach many circus apparatus and disciplines.
Vanessa is a certified gymnastics coach through the National Coaching Certification Program. She is also certified in first aid and CPR.
Vanessa teaches at the Halton Waldorf School and draws on her education experience when working with children at Zacada. At the circus she strives for a fair and respectful environment with the children, where each child feels seen, heard and has a fun active time!
