Georgie Johnson, Aerials Coach
Sessions: Advanced Camp

Circus Smirkus was the first place Georgie dipped her toes into the wonderful world of circus and she is delighted to be coming back for her third year of coaching young and talented artists. Growing up, Georgie taught and performed in Amazing Grace Circus youth troupe based in Nyack, NY. She graduated from the New England Center for Circus Arts (NECCA) professional program in 2016 and with a major in dance from Oberlin College in 2020.

Although Georgie graduated circus school with a focused discipline in dance trapeze, she’s versed in duo work, acrobatics, hand balancing and clowning. She enjoys a multidisciplinary approach to circus and brings her experience in dance and physical theater training into her approach.

In her free time, Georgie enjoys reading and spending time with her best friend Nina and alter ego Dottie.
