About Deon Fox:
My name is Deon Fox and I am coming to you from Las Vegas, when I started circus I already had invested 14 into Gymnastics and Dance, I found circus in 2018 as a 23-year-old living in Seattle Washington, while working as an engineer. Upon taking my first circus class I knew my life was changed. I instantly fell in love and knew I had to share the love with others which got me interested in coaching. I had been coaching various sports including gymnastics, cheer, tumbling, and track and field for 10 years up until then, thus giving me an arsenal of techniques to adapt to aerial. I specialize in Rope and straps, while also having technical training and knowledge in aerial silks and aerial pole. My mantra is, love what you do and do what you love which is why I am excited to teach and work with new students of all levels. I have been seen on stage with Teatro ZinZanni, Emerald City Trapeze, Rose City Circus, Lady Raven Productions, and toured with Troupe Vertigo.
