About me




portrait de l'artsite

Gymnast since the age of eight, I discovered circus arts at 18 by integrating training to become circus teacher in resorts (2009 - 2011). I discovered a new passion and a desire to learn that does not stop, I discovered my favorite one and the one who will be my main discipline, the flying trapeze that I will have the chance to practice for two years.

From 2011 to 2012, I worked for Les ateliers de la piste Achille Zavatta as a circus coach before getting my first job as an artist in an amusement park called Parc Asterix.

Simultaneously, I kept gymnastic training and I was also gymnastics coach for male section in my gymnastics club in Illzach.

Cap Esterel / Port Bourgenay

Discovery of circus arts, practice of different disciplines, juggling, fixed trapeze, swinging trapeze, acrobatics on the floor and the main one, flying trapeze. After a few months of training I’m going to work in Port Bourgenay resort.

I will give circus class in the morning with kids and flying trapeze class in the afternoon with adults.

Simultaneously some resorts show with some basic choreographies and especially flying trapeze training in the afternoon and flying trapeze show once a week.

It’s during these shows I discovered the pleasure to be on stage and gave me the motivation and desire to keep training and learning some new disciplines.
