Avahni Tree
Avahni Tree

Avahni Tree started her circus journey in 2012 when she took an aerial silks class with her mother, Katie Tree. Later, she found herself not only practicing silks, but hoop dance, lyra, trapeze, flow arts, and partner acrobatics.
With her mother being an aerial and yoga instructor, Avahni soon started teaching others in early 2015.
“People still think of a freak show when they think of a circus. Elephants, and ugly clowns, and two-headed women. But circus has evolved into an art form, a way to express emotions and to give visual to a song. I want to help people develop the skills they need to use this kind of art.”
She didn’t need to run away with the circus, it came to her. Avahni, her family, and every other circus freak involved, makes up The Sacred Circus, “because sacred doesn’t have to be so serious.”
