Along with tight wire and bungee she has also trained as a partner acrobatic base, aerial hoop, teeter board pusher, dance, ensemble work and theatre.
Locksley's desire is to entertain the community in shows and performances meant to dazzle and inspire audiences from all over.
"I wouldn’t do circus if I wasn’t madly in love with it.
How can you be great at what you do if the underlying factor isn’t because you love it?
I want to give other people the same feeling that I got when I saw my first Cirque Du Soleil show Quidam. I was filled with so much wonder, joy, excitement, hope and belief. I want to offer an escape, give them hope and joy, take them on a journey." ~Locksley
