Colleen grew up in Cleveland, Ohio where she spent her early years in gymnastics. After getting a BS in environmental engineering, she discovered the world of circus and pole dancing. What started as a hobby quickly turned into a passion, and she began performing with Cleveland’s circus troupes Shanty Circus and Stardrop Circus. To further her circus training, Colleen came to NECCA and is currently in the ProTrack Program, where she specializes in Chinese Pole and swinging trapeze.
