Warrnambool's Matilda Allen Invited To Le Petit Cirque Program In The USA

It's not every day locals get invited to Los Angeles to work with a multi award winning junior cirque company, but for Matilda Allen that's exactly what happened.

After viewing one of her routines online, a representative for the famous Le Petite Cirque in LA reached out to her mother, and invited the young performer to their 2020 summer intensive program in August.

The company consists of a wide array of specialists including acrobats, aerialists, contortionists, hand balancers, vocalists, dancers and martial artists.

Matilda who trains at Physipole in Warrnambool, says she can't wait for the opportunity to work with some of the best in the industry, with the hopes of one day turning her talents into a full time career.

"The people that I'll be actually working with are the Disney film producers, Cirque Du Soleil casting directors, Olympic level acrobatic people, the creator and choreographer for Beyonce, Rihanna and Bon Jovi"

"Learning all different new skills and learning so many different apparatus as well, because I've only really done hoop and silk"

"I'll be learning so much more working with all the amazing people, I hopefully would really love to join the circus, travel and make it my full-time job".

More information about Matilda's journey, including how to help support her trip is available via the 'Lets Get Til to USA' Go Fund Me page.
