Trixie's typical practice method was to do a trick perfectly 10 times out of 10, starting over if she missed any attempts. She was able to juggle 5 large balls, 7 plates, and 6 plates with a head bounce, and she could bounce two balls on her head at once.
Trixie performed in various venues in Europe, including circuses and variety showcases, and for a number of heads of state and royalty. In 1938, she moved to America, where she worked at Radio City Music Hall, in a movie with Fred Astaire, and as a featured star with Ice Capades from 1942 to 1957. She married Escoe Larue, another Ice Capades performer. Trixie received the Historical Achievement Award from the IJA in 1991.
