Welcome and thanks for listening to The Artist Athlete! Listen to this episode to learn about the host, Shannon Mckenna, as well as hear about the upcoming guests.
Shannon McKenna is an internationally recognized circus performer and coach. For the past decade, she has been a freelance artist: giving workshops and classes across 7 countries and worked on both traditional and contemporary circus shows in the US, Portugal, Germany, and Australia including the Shrine Circus and SOAP.
She holds a BFA from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts with a concentration on post-modern physical theater (how’s that for a mouthful?). Shannon Mckenna founded The Artist Athlete in 2018 as a means to produce educational materials about circus arts including a line of e-books to help aerial artists train safely and a podcast in which she interviews experts in the industry about their careers. If you’re reading this, you’re probably listening to it. Thank you!
She currently lives in whichever circus community is the warmest.
