She specializes in single point trapeze, aerial hoop, flying trapeze, double aerial, contortion and acrobatics. Christine has performed at various resorts around the world and has been teaching and performing in San Francisco since 2010. She started at the Trapeze School in New York on flying trapeze and quickly fell in love with all things circus.

Recently, Christine co-founded The Dahlias – four circus artists who bring together a broad set of specialties and a combined 40 years of artistic/performance experience in circus. “We have been training and performing together for years and while we all share a passion for the circus, we each bring a unique collection of skills and experience to the stage,” said Lee.
