SARAH "DOOGS" MCDOUGALL
Sarah 'Doogs' McDougall began circus when she decided it was time to learn a backsault to celebrate winning points on the volleyball court! When volleyball faded into the background and circus took over, she began expanding her circus skills and discovered fire, aerial and hula hoops! Despite an irrational fear of heights, Doogs loves being in the air and has trained in all forms of aerial. She specialises in Single-point Trapeze and Hula Hoops (secretly we know that this is all just an excuse to wear cool costumes & crazy make-up in public though!)!
Melbourne based aerialist, Danielle Gledhill (“Bella Volare”) has a varied background in tumbling, static trapeze and tissu. Having performed both nationally and internationally at events such as Burning Man Festival in Nevada, Whittlesea Agriculture Show with “The Flying Lotahs” and various festival and nightclub appearances, Danielle incorporates death defying drops and fire arts into her performances.
