Teaching Artist & Circademic
One of the original "circademics", Sonja created her own Masters of Arts degree in Circus, Education, Youth Development, and Sociology at New York University (2013). She created a census for the American Youth Circus and American Circus Educators Associations (2011 & 2018), and is a former youth circus lead coach at Circus Warehouse in NYC. Sonja has trained circus skills with a variety of programs, walks tightwire, and hangs from generally everything. Having performed around the country, she's currently focused on teaching and researching the weird and wonderful world of circus.
