Meet Bunny

Visiting instructor for Aerial Silks, Stage Make-up, and Act Development!
Bunny has been directing and producing shows with touring troupe, the Vespertine Circus, for the last five years. Based out of Oakland, California, she’s visiting Seattle until the end of March to come join the Emerald City Trapeze Arts crew and make some magic. A life-long painter and thespian, Bunny brings her theatrical and visual-art experience to all things circus with gusto. Her focuses when performing are clowning and aerial silks, but she’s been known to dance with fire, or hop on a tight-wire when the occasion calls for it.

Get ready for classes that will change the way you perform! Bunny is offering classes in both Stage Make-up and Act Development! If you are looking for a fun way to improve your skills or you are interested in learning more about a new art form, these classes will equip you with the techniques, tools, and knowledge to transform you from newbie to make-up artist extraordinaire!
