Josephine built a solid background in modern jazz, hip-hop and contemporary dance during her childhood. She also had some experience with ballet.
As an adult, she discovered aerial arts through pole dancing and fell in love with the discipline. This form of expression suited her most, and she decided to enrich her acrobatic work with an artistic approach.
It is only after a beautiful encounter that she was introduced to contemporary circus. Aerial hoop, aerial silks and straps opened for her new fields of perception and new ways of working.
After completing a teaching trainer at Ovale Lune from 2015 to 2017 and with Sarah Bebe Holmes from Paperdoll Militia in 2017, she decided to dedicate herself fully to her passion for aerial arts and teaching
She keeps enriching her practice and pedagogy each year, taking part in the famous festival LRDA, while enrolling in other teacher trainings and dance workshops (Lasseindra Ninja, Olga Kobos, Maëlle Reymond...).
