Juliette Watkins FHEA

I trained originally as a dancer in the 80's then became a touring acrobat and aerial artiste in the circus for many years, retiring from performance finally in 2008.

As well as performing worldwide, I have also taught dance, acrobatics and aerial skills for decades. I have worked as a creative on large scale productions such as Batman Live World Arena Tour and Barnum the Musical UK Tour. I was the Head of Circus Delivery at the National Centre for Circus Arts up until Summer 2016, supervising and designing the delivery of the HE curriculum and managing the creative aspects of student performances.

I subsequently left London to move to Saddleworth and start my own Pilates business, something I'd been wanting to do for a while. As a Level 4 qualified Body Control Pilates teacher I am keen to progress all of my clients effectively in a safe environment. I believe that my years of experience as both a performer and teacher serve me well in this respect. I also really believe that exercise should be fun to do!
