Jeanine grew up in Switzerland, climbing trees, training Judo and teaching herself to ride a unicycle. Her love for circus brought her to the ESAC National Circus school in Brussels where she trained for four years. After graduating Jeanine toured internationally, performing various acts including her solo ‘Balledanse.’

In 2010, she founded the ‘Aromatic Company’ with saxophonist Caleb Trott. Together they create pieces that combine music, dance, physical theatre, and circus. Always excited about discovery and expanding the ‘playground’, Jeanine has given much of her adult life to the pursuit of specialised dance and juggling courses.

Also a passionate teacher, she has co-organised three international workshops with the 'Ministry of Manipulation', given workshops on contact juggling and movement exploration at many circus conferences, and worked as a guest teacher at circus schools in Europe (ACAPA, Codarts) and Australia (NICA).

In 2013, Jeanine completed the three year training to become a certified teacher of the F. M. Alexander Technique and now uses this tool to enhance movement quality, accelerate learning and increase vitality.
