Joe and Lexee
Lexee got an early start in acrobatics at the young age of 5 years old doing competitive artistic gymnastics. After having spent 9 year of her childhood in the gym working hard and developing her talents, she found herself in a theatre production of The Beauty and the Beast and quickly fell in love; there was no turning back. She went on to receive her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Theatre at Wayne State University(WSU), where she also had the once in a lifetime opportunity to study abroad in Moscow, Russia, at the Moscow Art Theatre School. Going straight to the source of the origins of modern theatre, she learned a plethora of different techniques and skills from world renowned masters.
Joe got his start in circus in 2015 when he moved to Salida, CO where he discovered a local and community circus called Salida Circus. He humbly began by learning how to stilt walk, which led to juggling, acrobatics and then clowning. One thing leading to another, Joe found himself touring and traveling around the world attending social circus conferences, clowning in third world countries and training with some of the best in the industry.
Joe met Lexee in Chicago one fateful day and realized they had that natural circus duo potential. One casual date led to another, and well… the rest is history.
Joe and Lexee currently reside in Salida, CO where they teach, train and gig as they come.
