Grace Turner

Grace Turner is an eclectic and ambitious dancer, aerialist and performance artist who experiments with the boundaries of physicality, theatre and creativity. Following a childhood filled with dancing and creativity Grace trained professionally at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, graduating with a 1st Class Honours Degree. It was during her professional training at LIPA that Grace began to widen her creative horizons by training as an aerialist. Since graduating Grace has trained, performed and taught with a wide range of companies including: Oily Cart, Hammond Feel the Magic, Wired Aerial Theatre, LPM Dance Theatre, Fidget Feet, Circus Suburbia, Ockham's Razor, CoDa Dance Company, The Circus House, 12 Degrees North, Greentop Circus and LUMACS. In 2013 she was cast as Molly Moon in Oily Carts touring childrens show Mr & Mrs Moon, a show that combined her acting, dance, singing and aerial skills in an exciting adventure to save the moon. In 2015 Grace completed the Greentop Circus in Performance Course with a Distinction and most recently has been performing in Qatar as an aerialist in The Jungle Book and Cinderella for Hammond Feel the Magic. 

Currently Grace works for Wired Aerial Theatre as their lead Higher Education Circus Tutor and has also been performing and company managing their team at the Bregenzer Festspiele Haus for Carmen 2018 and Rigoletto 2019. 

Grace is very excited about the prospects of both FlyAround our new strand of aerial dance classes and The Thief the Fox and the Phoenix our newest project fusing dance and aerial performance.
