Stretching


This class is taught by:

Ash Rexford

Growing up in Sarasota Florida Ash's love for circus began at an early age and evolved into a reality when she moved to San Luis Obispo, California in 2007. It started with circles, specifically hoops. First a big hula-hoop, then several little hoops, then aerial hoop, LED hoop, fire hoop, all the hoops! It was her love for performing with her hoops that either convinced or tricked her (depending on how you look at it) into quit her job and pursue her passion for circus arts full time. After that door was opened, Ash was able to follow her heart to her her one true love: contortion. Ash began training at Circus Center through Catie Brier's Contortion Intensive. It only took 2 summers for her to threw caution to the wind and officially to move to San Francisco. As part of the Circus Center community you can find her teaching contortion and flexibility, and working as the party and event coordinator. When not training contortion, hooping, or dancing you can find Ash, well... actually let's be honest, she's still probably somewhere dancing. Either dancing at a music festival, dancing on stage, or dancing at home with her doggy.

Michelle Cooper

Michelle Cooper is a California native and has lived in San Francisco for over ten years. She loves stretching and shortly after beginning classes here at Circus Center, she was accepted into the Contortion program and began teaching the beginner and intermediate level flexibility classes.
