“Life is too short to not just do it!” -Minnie Maniac
Minnie Maniac (aka Toni Smith), lives an amazing life travelling the world as an adventurer and performer. At 18, Toni began her training at a circus school in Christchurch, New Zealand. She later joined a traveling circus performing trapeze, hula hoops, clown and acrobalance. Along the way, she has done some really cool things, including a high wire act between two buildings 46 metres (150 feet) above ground, a stint as a half-woman/half-ape in the BBC movie “The Lost World,” and a performance on the red carpet at the premiere of “King Kong.” Toni has travelled to Australia, Canada, England, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Thailand, the United States, and Vietnam.
