Live Like An Acrobat Podcast EP.50: Las Vegas Circus Center Founder Michelle Hunt

On this episode of the Live Like An Acrobat Podcast, host Shenea Stiletto interviews Founder of the Las Vegas Circus Center Michelle Hunt. She, together with her husband Brand Hunt, founded the center in 2018, and all of the center’s setups are designed to the exact specifications of Strip shows for the athletes’ convenience, which explains why so many artists from Cirque, Spiegelworld, and other shows spend so much time training there. The massive warehouse space offers plenty of space for weightlifting, aerobic workouts, and dance training in addition to its vast collection of specialized circus arts apparatuses, everything from teeterboards to Russian swings. There’s even an “American Ninja Warrior”-style stunt course.
