Sky Candy
Austin, TX
Winnie ran away to Austin in the late-2000s and shortly after started Austin's first interdisciplinary and inclusive aerial and circus arts school, Sky Candy. Sky Candy's mission is to promote "circus for every body" and is known locally and nationally as a size-inclusive, gender-inclusive, ability-inclusive, age-inclusive, and background-diverse studio. We live the ethos of constant improvement and have made a strong push in 2020 to support better racial inclusivity in our staff and student community, as well as making a big effort to support local racial justice initiatives.

Winnie continues today as the CEO of Sky Candy with a team of 36 instructors, front desk unicorns, directors, managers, and teaching assistants who basically run the show and are overall wonderful humans. She's super proud of the team that she's built and hopes they'll help her realize her dream of creating a recreational circus revolution that supports and fosters the love of circus for anyone who wants to participate.

She's this year's Virtual ACE EdCon 2020 Programming Director and hopes that you learn, connect, and get a lot out of this year's unique conference format and content!
