Tristan Cunningham has been teaching circus arts to children for over ten years. She is a well-trained summer camp counselor, head of acrobatics and clowning, theater teaching artist, and director of circus summer camp for companies on the east and west coast.
Her passion for teaching comes from her deep love for children and her belief that theater and circus are for everyone. She enjoys seeing her students grow not only in skills but in learning helpful tools they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Circus and performing has changed her life and she feels lucky to share this passion with her students.
She recently won the 2018 Luminary Award for education from California Shakespeare Theater.
