Flying Trapeze, Aerial Adagio
It would be fair to say that Bekki Mitzi Ashton was born with sawdust and sequins in her veins; her first “proper” act was the Aerial Dental act at the age of 8. A circus girl through and through, Bekki’s main passion is Trapeze, primarily the demanding Flying Trapeze; she is still the only Australian women to ever catch the Legendary Triple Somersault on the Flying Trapeze. Naturally enough Bekki lists this as her greatest professional achievement, Although she has performed many different types of acts, Bekki still feels her proudest moments in the ring have been when a young member of the family, such as her nephews Jordan and Merrik and most recently her daughter Dante, has joined her and other family members in the famous Flying Ashtons Trapeze act. Bekki doesn’t see a life for herself outside the circus, and dedicates each performance to her much-loved Nana Phyllis who always advised her to “Smile, and point your toes”. The glamorous ( and very blonde) FIFI, Bekki’s comic alter ego, gives her a chance to indulge a love of Extravagant Bling and Extreme high Heels!
