Rhian Halford

Instructor

Rhian is a Cardiff born all-rounder. After teaching herself to juggle at 17 years old, her first introduction to performance was a circus course at Greentop, in Sheffield in 1997. She then started her career working with Syrcas Circus in North Wales, and also busked her way around France and Holland. Her first act was in doubles trapeze touring with Circus Ricardo in 2000. She then moved on to acrobatics training with the Da Ramos acrobats of Polichinelo Circus, where she often found herself balancing at the top of human pyramids!

In 2003 Rhian graduated with a first class degree from The Circus Space / Central School of Speech and Drama in London. It was here she found her passion for juggling with great tutors such as The Gandinis.

Rhian has been working with NoFit State for 10 years. She was involved in the very first UK Tour of ImMortal in 2004 in the silver spaceship big top, and regards this as one of her many highlights!

Rhian is a fluent Welsh speaker and enjoys teaching circus skills bilingually. She is thrilled to be a NoFit State instructor teaming up with Martha Mascord to deliver Youth Circus classes here every Saturday.
