Georgie Johnson

Georgie Johnson, Aerials Tent Lead
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 second 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 professional program in 2016 and is currently studying dance at Oberlin College with a concentration in creation and performance; there she continues to interweave circus and aerial work into her creative process.

Although Georgie graduated 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 dance and physical theater training into the mix.

In her free time, Georgie enjoys unfolding the secrets of the universe, reading and practicing her yodeling (her newest pastime).
