Anthony Cummings always had a love for math, logic, and puzzles which culminated in an interest in juggling. He decided to run away and join a circus. by participating in a professional training program for circus artists. After graduating he began performing with several local companies in Colorado such as Lumina Entertainment, The Clocktower Cabaret, Rainbow Militia, and many more. Anthony has worked in large scale productions for Royal Caribbean on the Oasis of the Seas where he was an acrobat, aerialist, and juggler. After returning to his hometown, Denver, from a successful contract he co-founded Circus Foundry where he acts as Technical Director, Performer, and Coach.
Bryan Connolly was born both whimsical and bloodthirsty. Naturally this dichotomy led to a career in the circus. It began by learning to juggle from Jon Wee of the Passing Zone, and quickly escalated to acrobatics, stunt work, acting, dance, and worst of all, street theatre. By the time he received his Bachelor’s degree for Theatre Performance from Colorado State University, there was no turning back. He was committed to a life of circus. He has now performed in a plethora of circus shows with Cirque Dreams, Circus Foundry, The Clocktower Cabaret, Rainbow Militia, Borillo Entertainment, even toured with a professional jousting company for a while, and is the second-in-command at Knights of the Tempest. Bryan the great circus knight will continue to find occasion to bewilder audiences far and wide.
Since the age of eight Cassidy Vallin has always loved the thrill of performing. She began her journey with the Snowflake Circus, a local student program in Evergreen Colorado. From there, her love for the athleticism and artistry that circus brought only flourished. She specializes in all things trapeze, but studies most all aerial disciplines. Circus has pulled her all over the country from Las Vegas to Montreal training with Cirque Du Soleil coaches and performing with companies such as Young Circus Professionals, Circus Foundry, and Iluminar TOO. Her love for the art form has only grown as she discovered other facets of circus including partner acrobatics, dance, hula hooping, and chinese pole. The love she has for the circus has not wavered since the little girl entered that gym years ago.
