Workshops with Selene Ballesteros-Minguer

This is a great opportunity to train with artists from around the world!

act development workshop

March 31 – May 12 • 7:00 pm – 7:55 pm

This workshop is for our students looking to turn individual skills they have worked so hard on into a performable aerial act. Students will choose their music and apparatus (hoop, silks, trapeze, or straps), then work closely with Selene to each develop their own act. Students are asked to know at least 10 tricks (drops, poses, or skills) prior to enrolling in the class. New skills will not be taught in this class.

*workshop for ages 13+
under 13 upon approval by the instructor


About Selene Ballesteros-Minguer​

Selene is a circus artist originally from Latin America, but raised in Vancouver, BC. From a young age, she was highly active, trying out all the sports time would allow, before trying and loving gymnastics. In her mid-teens, by chance, she started to train circus, and found the perfect blend of athletic and artistic abilities within the art form. She began her circus training in contortion and silks, but later decided to specialise in aerial rope and double hammock at the National Circus School of Montreal. Since graduating from ENC, she has been touring the globe performing with Cirque Éloize, Stufish, and most recently Cirque du Soleil, as well as collaborating with various studios to host workshops. Selene is a lover of creation and questioning, movement and exploration, and helping others find their own creative expression.
