When Daisy moved to London in 2012, she immersed herself in dance to offset the pressure of her IT job. However, having trained in gymnastics from age 3 to 18, she was missing the more acrobatic side of it. So she signed herself up to a random rope class, and suddenly everything clicked. After that, things changed. More training. More classes. Until the sudden realisation in January 2016 that this was her new life. No more IT. Bring on the full time circus life.
Daisy has trained on most aerial equipments but aerial hoop is still her first love. Corde lisse is another specialism and she is currently working to tame her contortion straps.
Circus is Daisy’s family. She remains in contact with the people she met on her very first aerial class. She finds the sense of support and community incredible. There is just endless creativity. In her own words: ‘It is challenging, painful, tiring and sometimes disconcerting but I love that it pushes the limits of what we believe we can't do’.
When not in the air, Daisy can be found trying to learn to juggle – which is proving significantly harder than hanging upside down 10 meters off the ground. She also enjoys playing the piano, painting walls and in winter, going home to Switzerland to whizz down the slopes. If circus hadn't found her, She’d make a pretty handy skiing instructor!
