Leslie brings a lifetime of dance training and professional circus skills to fire performance to create a unique fusion that is powerful and beautiful. She was honored with the opportunity to perform for the cast of Cirque du Soleil and was accepted into the Cirque performer database in Aug 2011. She has created many large-scale fire performances for everyone from Bumbershoot to Burningman.
Leslie can be seen solo as well as with her fire troupe, Pyrosutra. She works and performs with the professional collective at the nationally acclaimed circus arts center, The School of Acrobatics and New Circus Arts, in Seattle, WA. A proud native of the great state of Maine, Leslie currently makes her home in Seattle; that is, until the circus comes to town.
