Dannick and his sister Marianne both trained together at the National Institute of Circus Arts under the expert tutelage of Moscow State’s Vasily Ivanov. In 2010, the pair took 14 young performers for a six-week tour of England and Germany. When the troupe landed in Bristol, Dannick and Mariane decided never to leave. They now both perform teeterboard and acrobatics for the Invisible Circus, and since 2011 Dannick has taught on both the BTEC and FDA courses.
