In 2001 Holly began her exploration into the circus arts, beginning with fire performance – dancing, eating, and manipulation. In 2003 Holly co-founded Femmes du Feu Creations with her fire partner Lindsay Goodtimes and in 2007 the company turned its focus towards aerial dance including silks, rope, hoop, harness, bungee, static and dance trapeze. As Artistic Director of Femmes du Feu Creations, Holly has created, performed and presented many contemporary circus works, including her recent solo project In the Fire, the early years show Tweet Tweet with Lindsay and Ian Goodtimes, and The Lonely Child Project with Angola Murdoch and opera singer Stacey Dunlap.
Holly has always been a strong advocate for community engagement. In 2019 Holly and her family moved to Welland, Ontario, in the Niagara region to open a brand new community art space – The Bank Art House. She believes that art has the ability to inspire, educate, and bring people together to build stronger communities. She is currently an active member on the board of the Welland Business Improvement Association (BIA) and is working with the City of Welland to promote circus within the city. Outside of her performance life Holly is a mother of two, a certified yoga instructor (2001 graduate), a Doctor of Osteopathy (2008 graduate) and continues to teach circus classes and workshops around Ontario and Manitoba.
