Rachel Talbert Workshops

Rachel began her formal circus training at New England Center for Circus Arts in Brattleboro VT in Contortion and Aerial Sling. She was awarded a scholarship to Actor’s Gymnasium in Chicago IL and completed their Circus Arts Intensive program. She further specialized her training in Chicago through study in Mongolian Contortion technique under the mentorship of Mongolian coach Oyunchimeg Yadamjav.  Rachel joined Host of Sparrows Aerial Circus in 2015 where she  has been performing ever since. Rachel started Shape Shifters Contortion LLC with a mission to provide outreach workshops to regional performing  arts studios. Rachel’s pursuit of continuing education and professional development  has led her to achieve flexibility teacher training certifications through Cirque du Soleil’s Alixa Sutton. She  has also completed professional development training on Physical Therapy techniques for injury prevention through Cirque Physio. Rachel is a professional member of  American Circus Educators  and maintains a Basic Life Support provider certification through the American Heart Association.
