Shannon Vitali

From a young age, Shannon Vitali dreamt of being on the stage. At fourteen, she began dancing at the Graham Academy of Dance in Far North Queensland, Australia. In 2010 she pursued a Bachelors of Circus Arts at the National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA) in Melbourne.

Her passion for circus developed in her first year of NICA, where she specialised in dance contortion, adagio, risley, and aerial acrobatics. While at NICA, Shannon performed in several large-scale NICA productions including CODA in 2011, and Lucy and the Lost Boy in 2012. Since graduating NICA in 2012 Shannon has been performing professionally in the circus industry.

She has performed at weddings, nightclubs, awards nights, as well as for corporate functions and events such as Crown Casino, Nike Sports, Lululemon Sports and Myer. She held a contract performing on the P&O Pacific Jewel Cruise lines as a Circus Artist.

Shannon has since worked primarily with the Queensland based contemporary circus company Circa. In 2017, Shannon toured internationally with the circus company Casus.
