Ileigh Reynolds helps circus artists become confident, successful and smart entrepreneurs!
She’s a Business Coach and Chief Empowerment Officer at Circus Boss where she supports circus performers, producers, coaches, and studio owners with their finances, marketing, sales and effective business strategies.
Ileigh began performing professionally in the 90’s, with a career as eclectic as her personality. From modern dance, physical theater and circus, to performing arts venues, cruise ships and the events industry, she’s performed and choreographed throughout the US, South America, and the Caribbean.
In 2006 she founded Animate Objects Productions and self-produced physical theater / dance / circus shows, ran Fly Space, Miami’s only aerial studio at the time, and produced the Snowbird Winter Aerial Arts festival in Miami. Years into her journey she moved the company to Seattle and produced award winning entertainment in the events industry for Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook, Google, Expedia and a gazillion other high profile clients.
Her unique perspective speaks from being on all sides of the stage. From circus performer, dancer, and lighting designer, to casting director, choreographer, and event planner, she intimately knows the needs and struggles of all the players. After 25+ years of performing and 15 years of running Animate Objects, she’s sharing her business knowledge and paying it forward to the next generation of circus innovators.
She holds a BFA in Dance from New World School of the Arts, and found her love for sharing business and marketing strategies with circus artists when she taught professional development classes in SANCA’s Professional Preparatory Program in Seattle.
Circus Boss has a podcast, workshops and personalized coaching, all focused on giving circus pros tools and strategies to bring their big bold dreams to life – and rock their biz like a Circus Boss!
