Mira Leonard: Performer

I tend to talk a lot. Even though I prefer the company of lovely people I also like those moments of solitude, listening to ridiculously loud music and dancing when no one is watching. And coffee.I stumbled into the circus world as a child and ran straight into the young and tiny Esmeralda Nikolajeff. The first time we tried the trapeze together my legs cramped and I let go. Now I don't remember how it became our main discipline, I guess the next attempt went better because since then, we've been sharing beds, caravans and tents when we've been traveling and performing together both on big stages, boats, in trees and living rooms.I look forward now after graduating to more adventures.}
