Cynthia "Aviance" Rauschert is a professional stilt-walker, contact juggler and entertainer from New York City currently living in San Francisco, California. After six years working primarily as a walk-around entertainer and circus skills instructor at various private, corporate and community events on the east coast, she was accepted into the flagship "EPI/CC" program, a collaboration between the SF Clown Conservatory and the New College of California's Experimental Performance Institute.
In August 2007 Cynthia was one of the first four to ever receive an accredited degree in Clowning in the United States. After graduation she toured with Cirque du Soleil on the Saltimbanco Bus and is now performing locally in the Bay Area.
When not performing Cynthia operates CynRa Media, a small private graphic design company "for artists by artists" and co-produces CircusNYC.com, New York City's link to the circus & variety arts community.
Cyn's mission is to spread joy and wonder and she's trying to change the world one smile at a time.
