Megan’s biography:

Megan found circus 8 years ago after spending too much time sitting at a desk. Desperate for a hobby that would give her the opportunity to exercise her body as much as she was exercising her brain she accidentally found SANCA, the largest circus school in the country, signed up for an acrobatics class, and never left. She was thrilled to learn that she didn’t have to run away to join the circus, there was one in her own backyard. After a few years of circus acrobatics she was introduced to L-basing acro material and not long after that was collaborating with Lux on some truly fun spinny sequences. She loves the communication and collaboration of partner acrobatics, and can usually be found doing a handstand either on the floor or on another person.
