Summer Camp Director | Texas Holly | Circus Center


Texas has been singing and dancing for as long as she can remember. After graduating from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in dance, she ran away and infiltrated the Clown Conservatory at Circus Center, from whence she graduated Magna Cum Loud in 2005. She has since performed regularly with Bay Area favorites such as Lunatique Fantastique, Miracle Theater, The Pickle Family Circus, and Jump Theater.
