Synapse Circus Youth Performance Troupe Assistant Director
& Aerial Coach
Skyttle grew up as a classically trained ballerina with hopes of becoming a figure skater, or a rockette in the famous NYC “Rockefeller Center”. They discovered the circus arts when their friends from Los Angeles asked them to fly over and dance en pointe in a variety show. Up close and personal, Skyttle got to discover the joy of performing by being both a performer and a perceptive audience member. When they saw their friends performing aerial arts, they knew that the circus community was the right place for them.
After graduating from the School of Visual Arts, NYC, Skyttle made the decision to “run away and join the circus.” With a BFA in hand, Skyttle has been travelling to many different states and circus academia to educate themself with the ways of the circus, and spreading the joy of it!
Skyttle is currently dedicated to become proficient in aerial arts, contortion, dancing, and performing. They aim to provide an environment that is a safe place for students to confidently try new things, and feel comfortable doing so. Giving learners the opportunity to unleash their imagination through their own creativity is very important to Skyttle as an artistic educator. They aspire to hold each and every student within their care to high expectations, so they can successfully develop a healthy outlet.
