Short Bio: Jesyka Sham is a born performer and will captivate an audience with her happiness which radiates from her when she performs. She incorporates her ability to dance into every performance and her love for circus shines bright when she is put into the spot light. She is a Director of a non-profit company called the Living Arts Foundation, which has The Shed as it’s home,  which runs a social project called Sisonke Social Circus who’s aim is to bring children from different branches of life together through circus. She also offers aerial silk classes through her company called Flying Fitness. She can keep an audience entertained with all the different fire toys she has and will astound you with her strength and agility whilst up in the air doing aerial silks. In 2017 she joined The Fantastic Grifizzi Brothers a travelling gypsy circus where she performed as an aerial acrobat doing Spanish Web and Globe on a 6 month contract.

She has danced for many private and corporate events with some of the highlights being The Design Indaba, House & Leisure, DKNY, Cubana (throughout the Western Cape), Shimmy Beach Club and The Grand.
