Jenna Ciotta found circus arts after completing her BA degree. Out of shape and looking for a creative outlet, she signed up for classes at a nearby pole dance studio. Weekly pole class quickly turned into pole, lyra, fabric, contortion, and fire eating. Having danced all of her life, circus offered a new and exciting creative outlet for personal expression through movement. Jenna began her training in Phoenix, Arizona and continued in London, England for a year while completing her MA. After finishing her degree she moved back to Phoenix to pursue circus arts full time, where she taught and performed regularly for private, corporate, and staged events and for some of Phoenix’s best nightclubs. She now lives in Brattleboro, VT where she studies lyra and tumbling in the ProTrack Program at the New England Center for Circus Arts.
