Vesta is internationally acclaimed, performing internationally with tours of both Asia and the USA.

Vesta also runs summer camps, and teaches ongoing circus lessons for kids and adults at Nanaimo Gymnastics School. They are funded via ArtStarts in Schools as ‘artist in residence’ to teach and perform in schools- this year teaching grade 2’s and 4’s at Coal Tyee Elementary.
