Meet Olivia Bascombe from Orlando, Florida.
She is an aspiring aerial acrobat and contortionist who is open to any aerial apparatus, but specializes in aerial silks.
As a young child she was always fascinated with the circus and acrobats. For her 11th birthday, her mother had her try out an a aerial class and well…you see the results.
Olivia hit a rough point in her life, as we all do. She slipped into a depression for some time. It was through acrobatics she was able to escape. Aerial routines were a healthy way to cope through her tough times.
Her passion continues to grow for acrobatics and she says she’s never been happier!
Olivia is currently a student, but her ultimate dream would to be in a famous circus such Cirque du Soleil! She has been performing for about 5 years and wants to continue as long as she can. Kudos to you Olivia for following your passion and we hope you make it big in the future!
