Elli Kunkele and Ben Collis

Ben has been training in partner acrobatics and acrobatic dance since 2008, and has been teaching and performing for the past 4 years. He has trained and taught workshops in France, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK, and attended Flic Scuola di Circo in Italy. His teaching focus is on building confidence and a strong foundation to enable creation and mutual trust.

Elli started her acrobatic training in youth circus in Germany, and soon discovered a love for partner acrobatics. She has focused on that ever since and has developed a range of other skills to integrate with it, such as contortion, acrobatics and handstands. She spent most of 2013 in China training in handstands and contortion at Beijing International Arts School.
