A little bit about myself: My name is Ronja Buck and I grew up in Soest, a small city in Germany. I am a certified occupational therapist and I've also worked in various circus groups for many years. As a child, I learned several disciplines in a youth circus classes like unicycling, juggling, acrobatics and trapeze. Since 1997, I have been consistently training in various circuses. After a few years, I received my trainer license and started working in a circus and in several sport clubs in Soest, Germany. Through that opportunity, I was able to pass these skills on to children.
In October 2004, I moved to the city of Muenster to begin a 3-year educational program as an occupational therapist. Regrettably, I had to leave my former groups due to the move. However, I was able to continue pursuing my passion by working for a circus and various sport clubs there. In addition to training children in these circus groups and my professional work as an occupational therapist, I spent a considerable amount of my free time on weekends and during holidays participating voluntarily in circus projects throughout Germany.
In September 2010, I moved to Hawaii. Since then, I have continued to improve my circus skills. 2013 Circus Olina was established, since than I have been teaching circus/ movement classes, workshop and camps all over the island. Circus has been a part of my life for over 15 years and I decided rather than give it up because of the move, I would share my passion with you!
