...features balance artist Dextre Tripp and his wife, aerialist Jana Colgin.Together with their five rescued dogs, they put on a comedy filled, family friendly, acrobatic stunt show in their gorgeous one-ring circus stage.
Jana presents aerial acrobatics including trapeze and aerial silk. She’s known for her strong woman act that’s been featured on The Ellen Degeneres Show, the CBS Early Show, and America’s Got Talent. With a background in competitive gymnastics, Jana isn’t so good at training dogs, but she’s perfectly qualified to train people as an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. Deadlifts are her favorite. She'll leave the dog training to Dextre!
Dextre’s skills include ropewalking, ladder balancing, unicycling, juggling and dog training. His performances have been seen across the globe and have been featured on the MTV Music Awards, NBC’s the Today Show, and The Ellen Degeneres Show. Dextre’s unique flair for family-friendly comedy and his dazzling feats of balance keep the audience charmed and enthralled. He designs and builds all of the props for Circus Stella himself, but most importantly, he does the dishes.

Chris founded the Santa Cruz Juggling Festival in 2009 and hosts Diabolo Jam, a free diabolo meet-up group held in the SF Bay Area. When Chris is not travelling and performing juggling, he likes to spend his time developing his own video games.

Josh first came in contact with juggling at an after school circus program in Normal, Illinois. There he learned to juggle 3 clubs and later 3 torches. In the following years Josh began competing in the world championships of juggling. Josh has won a combined 9 gold medals from the World Juggling Federation and International Juggler’s Association. After college Josh worked a “real job” for a few years. He managed social media campaigns for Sony Pictures, Coca-Cola, Mattel Toys, and other major brands. After quitting his job to go full-time juggler, Josh decided to work on growing my own social media audience. Through creating incredible and creative online videos I have grown a young, loyal, and engaged audience of nearly 1,000,000 fans!
