Clown | Character Entertainer | Stilt Walker

After graduating from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in dance, Texas (Kelly) Holly ran away and infiltrated the Clown Conservatory at San Francisco’s Circus Center, graduating in 2005.
She has been singing and dancing for as long as she can remember.

Texas developed her skills under the tutelage of some of the original Pickle Family Circus members, and now teaches circus to youths in West Oakland at the Prescott Circus Theater and at Circus Center, where she is now the Director of Camp.

Her skills include just about everything circus, such as clowning, theater clowning, stilts, and juggling and object manipulation.
