Sydney’s story

Sydney Ignacio was first inspired to train in the circus arts when he saw video of Jonathan Fortin and Tarek Rammo performing on aerial straps. He was also moved by the performances of Eduardo Doye and Saulo Sarmiento on aerial pole. Sydney focused on the art with a rigorous training routine that included deep stretch, ballet, modern exercise techniques, and lots of conditioning. His hard work paid off.


For the past three years, Sydney has been performing on aerial pole and straps. He was a finalist in aerial pole at the 2015 US Aerial Championship, bronze medalist in the 2015 Atlantic Pole Championships (professional men category), and bronze medalist at the 2014 US National Pole Championships level 4.


Currently, Sydney is a regular performer at Sax Lounge DC where he performs aerial straps, aerial pole, ballet and contemporary dance.
