Kylie Wihardjo

Professional prop manipulator

Smilie loves coffee, dogs, and in particular, throwing things and catching them again. Smilie’s journey into the fire spinning and circus arts scene started in 2005, when she was handed her first fire staff. Since then, she has played with a variety of props, more recently focusing on poi and club juggling.

Smilie is passionately involved in the local flow arts community and helps organise monthly spin jams such as Sunset Gathering in Brisbane. From her experiences of travelling around the world and meeting different flow communities, she has been inspired to teach and share her love of spinning. She hopes to inspire people from all walks of life to expand their skills and learn something different.
