Christine is the founder of Christine Moonbeam Acro, co-founder of Colorado Acro Fest, Coach at Pitch Catch Circus: School of Acrobatics, a RYT 200 with a Bachelor of Arts in Dance from the University of Iowa.

Christine was first introduced to partner acrobatics in 2010 while working with a youth social circus for underserved youth in Washington D.C. called Zip Zap Circus USA. It was here that her passion for circus started to take flight! She has been studying partner acrobatics and handstand balancing ever since with circus, sports acro, and handstand coaches in the US and Europe. 

Christine has spent the last 7 years developing acro and handstand pedagogy, educating acro teachers and community builders, facilitating various acro trainings, events and festivals, traveling and teaching around the US, Europe, Asia, and Mexico. 

Christine believes partner acrobatics is a powerful tool for self-discovery empowerment, community building, and mental health. She is an advocate of earth stewardship, food sovereignty, BIPOC + Trans allyship and sees circus as a platform to support and give voice to these social and environmental topics.
