Polly Witherick

Aerial and Acrobatic Trainer - Performer

After years of competing as a high level acrobatic gymnast Polly found her way into circus when she successfully auditioned for the National Centre for Circus Arts youth circus program.

She initially specialised in tight-wire and soon after joining she realised she wanted to turn this new passion into a career. Polly then went on to study Contemporary Circus and graduated from the National Centre for Circus Arts’ degree program in 2017, with her main discipline being Cyr Wheel. Whilst training, Polly continued to develop her acrobatic and aerial skills in a technical and creative manner, as well as furthering her theatre and dance experience.

Alongside her cyr wheel training Polly also focused on hand-balancing and contortion. Since graduating Polly has been performing with an array of disciplines and acts all around the world in a variety of different shows and events. As well as performing she has also spent her time teaching circus and gymnastics to all ages.
