Nikki Borodi is a musician, clown, aerial acrobatic, yoga instructor and artist. After many years in New York City she is happy to be in the bay area inspired by it's community, nature and spirit. Her time is spent hanging upside down from silks or someone else's feet, entertaining children at parties, teaching and writing music with voice, ukulele and piano. She enjoys is in the works of writing a circus rock show to inspire people to manifest their dreams. Stay tuned and keep in touch via www.nikkiborodi.com.

Vangelis has been training on partner acrobatics since 2011, while also dabbling in hand balancing, tumbling, and static trapeze. Born and raised in Greece, he had never even seen live circus before moving to Berkeley. Coming here to work as a computer network engineer, he eventually took his first handstand class, and instantly fell in love. He has recently started performing, and dreams of starting his own circus troupe.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
