Later she discovered circus arts, primarily performing in small stage productions and at corporate events as a magicians assistant, fire performer, and aerialist. In 2015 she began touring with a Rock and Roll Cabaret in which she was the lead rigger and circus artist regularly performing 4 aerial or fire acts per day. Constance is a rigger and rope access technician, safety and professionalism are of the highest importance to her craft.
