Camille Osborne has been training in circus arts for six years. Before starting aerial, she trained in classical ballet since the age of four. Summers were always for ballet intensives, such as Joffrey Ballet and Marat Daukayev.
One day after school, one of her friends asked if she wanted to try aerial; Camille fell in love with it instantly. Her pointe work, strict discipline, and body alignment were tremendous assets to her aerial work. She also felt that aerial arts let her express herself more freely. Camille has been training regularly ever since, including participating in the intensive camp at the prestigious École nationale de cirque in Quebec for the past two summers.
Camille has also discovered a passion for competition. At the VIVA Fest competition in Las Vegas she won her age group in 2017 and also won the overall best student award in 2017 and 2018. She won second place at Circus Star USA 2017.
Camille also recently began training in Tai Kwon Do. Martial arts have given her more strength and stamina, which has helped her in the aerial arts. Camille just earned her green belt and is aiming for a black belt.
