We are delighted to reveal Lauren Breunig as a featured journeyman applicant of the North American Circus Competition.
Lauren Breunig fell in love with circus while working as a counselor at Circus Smirkus summer camp during college. After graduating, she began taking classes at the New England Center for Circus Arts (NECCA), first as a recreational student, then as part of their professional training programs, where she worked with world-class coaches from Cirque du Soleil, Cirque Eloize, Ringling Brothers, and Pilobolus.
She is the pioneer of an original apparatus, the Sliding Trapeze, and was featured as an Innovative Aerialist at the 2013 Aerial Acrobatics Arts Festival of Denver, CO. In addition to Sliding Trapeze, she specializes in aerial sling, solo and duo fabric, static trapeze, and partner acrobatics. Her dynamic and fluid performances have delighted audiences large and small in venues ranging from gala parties and fundraisers, to cabarets and charity events.
She is also a versatile and engaging instructor who teaches circus arts to students of all ages at camps and schools around the country. A veteran of the stage as a singer, Lauren has toured and recorded in the US and around the world with a variety of folk music groups, including her folk band, Windborne.
