Victoria Quine began performing at 3 years old with her preschool dance class and since then has consistently performed as a competitive dancer, acrobat, object manipulator and juggler, and aerialist. She discovered the world of circus at her alma mater’s circus collective and continued her circus education at NICA (Australia), Esh Circus Arts (MA) and the New England Center for Circus Arts (VT), where she completed the ProTrack Program.
Victoria feeds her hunger for adventure through art and is most passionate about working collaboratively with other artists to create custom acts and shows. She has co-produced and performed in Interrobang?!; a six week circus bicycle tour throughout western Washington state with The Downside Up Circus. She also toured on a tall ship as an aerialist with The Caravan Stage Company in their show Hacked: the Treasure of the Empire in 2015. Victoria has performed solo and ambient aerials and acrobatics all over the country at various events, from huge parades and festivals, to circus schools, summer camps, and resorts.
Victoria has extensive teaching experience all across New England, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. She has taught an assortment of skills including creative movement, partner acrobatics and tumbling, juggling, aerials, puppetry and more to students of all ages. She especially enjoys working with at-risk youth and children with special needs, and is especially invested in circus as a way to explore constructive risk taking among adolescents.
Victoria has found that the circus arts are a wonderful tool with which to build a community of trust while allowing students to explore danger and risk in a safe and constructive environment. She is currently in New England, teaching children and adults how to trust themselves and fly high with the circus arts.
