Meghan Claire Pike
from Edinburgh, Scotland - U.K.
Meghan is a well known face around the Scottish and UK juggling scene and her fluid contact staff routines are always well received by jugglers and the public alike. From fast spins to graceful body rolls there's a bit of something for everyone. It is rare to see this uncommon skill executed quite so artistically.
Do to Fire safety restrictions at RIT, Meghan will NOT be doing Fire in the show. She will however be demonstrating contact staff at a level that has never ever been seen in the United States before.
