About the event
Parker was an elite trampolinist and has over 12 years of experience in trampoline and tumbling. His passion for trampoline developed from a deep admiration for circus as a child after having seen Cirque Du Soleil’s “Alegria”.
Parker has spent over a decade performing on the competition floor and has been practicing, coaching, and performing the circus arts in the most recent years. He joined the Club Med circus team in 2020 where he coached flying trapeze and some aerial apparatuses such as silks and hammock. Additionally, he had many opportunities on the performance stage in an aerial show, a flying trapeze show, and pop-up ambiance performances every week for 9 months. After Club Med, Parker attended a summer camp where he was the Circus Lead and taught both aerial arts and flying trapeze, while also being tasked with putting together a children’s circus show. Once camp ended, he stopped at various circus schools around the country until he was accepted into Emerald City Trapeze Arts and made Head Trampoline Instructor.
Parker worked to improve various aerial skills, trapeze technique, catching, lines pulling, and performing while there. He was in several numbers, including a solo trampoline act, in the show “I See Why” that ran for 6 weeks in Seattle, WA. Parker has coached from beginners to Cirque Du Soleil acrobats and Olympians.
He is new to the circus world, but still very excited and eager to learn more about whatever he can in order to help teach it to others.
