Online coaching for AERIALISTS with big technical, artistic, & MOBILITY goals


Hi, I’m Jessica John.

While working as a CIA analyst in Washington, DC, I stumbled upon circus. I was hooked from my first class. But it wasn’t an incredible leap, just a fortuitous stroll.

I was always a mover.

You see, I was always a mover, just a mover who still hadn’t found the movement she was looking for. As a kid, I was a competitive tennis player. In tennis, I was more interested in what made a shot work than about winning. In high school, I was a dancer. I would absorbs as much choreography as I could and then when I got home I would drill it for hours in my bedroom just to keep up. In college, I was an expert skier. I’d drive 2 hours to the mountain to take the same run all day long, watching the conditions change underneath me.

Curiosity, mastery, achievement, focus…

The things that turned me onto tennis, dance, skiing, and even the CIA, are the same things that drew me in to circus and have kept me in this field for over a decade. After the 2016 US presidential election, I left Langley to pursue full-time coaching, performing, and directing. I am an artist athlete and have not looked back. As an online coach for circus artists, dancers, and other artist-athletes, I love helping my clients refine their goals and giving the tools to make them a reality. My approach is guided by science and buoyed by my reverence for every artist.
