Name: Finn McNamee

How long have you been performing and what inspired you to start?
I have been performing since I was five and got into circus because of my parents. Once I started I was inspired by the performers I saw and dreamed of one day doing the things they did.
How are you preparing for finals? Are you doing anything differently from your usual practices?
For Finals I have been doing lots of physical training so that I can have my act down and not worry about performing.
What will performing on the Fox stage mean to you?
Performing at the Fox will be a great honor. I have seen many talented people perform on that stage and it will mean a lot to be able to finally do the same.
Is there someone you look up to and draw influence from for your talent?
I don’t think there is only one person that I draw my influence from but instead the teachers I have had that brought me to love what I do.
What has been the highlight of your performance career?
I think the highlight of my performance career has been performing at Circus Flora because it very personal and like a Circus Harmony tradition.
What do you hope to learn from your experience?
I hope to learn more about performing on a big stage and also help my stage presence.
