We are pleased to offer a special acrobatics workshop with professional Cyr Wheel artist Fiona Thornhill.
Fiona started her physical training as a Gymnast in 2001 and went on to spend eleven years competing both nationally and internationally as an elite Artistic Gymnast. While training she was selected to be part of the 2012 Move to the Beat Olympic Campaign and performed with Mark Ronson and Katie B at the Torch Relay Concert in Hyde Park in front of 80,000 people. This greatly developed her passion for performance and pushed Fiona to apply to the National Centre, where she chose to specialize in Cyr Wheel, and in her first term there she was chosen to perform in front of the Queen at the 100th Royal Variety Performance. She has since graduated the BA Honours with a First and Co-Founded Alula Cyr, an all female circus trio from London. Fiona has performed in international circus festivals such as Circa, in Auch, France, on TV in Blue Peter, Tumble and BBC One’s John Bishop Show as well as featuring in music videos for Block Party, HypeManSaga and Henry Green.
