Online coaching for AERIALISTS with big technical, performance, & teaching goals


Hi, I’m Jessica John, an online aerial coach.

I stumbled upon circus as an adult, and I was hooked from my first aerial silks class. At that time, I was a leadership analyst at the CIA with a weird hobby. Slowly but surely I allowed that weird hobby to take over my life. I became an aerialist and eventually a master coach to pole and aerial performers and teachers all over the globe.

Creating momentum . . .

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, but not a very good one. I would absorb 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 two hours to the mountain to take the same run all day long, watching the conditions change underneath me.

So when I found silks and trapeze in my early thirties, it felt like coming home.

. . . through curiosity, courage, & connection

The curiosity that turned me onto tennis, dance, skiing, and even the CIA, are the same things that drew me to circus and have kept me in this field for over a decade. In 2016, I took a scary leap and left Langley to become an online coach and mentor for aerialists, pole dancers, and other artist-athletes . . . just like you.

Circus Mobility's mission is to cultivate virtual feminist aerial community and practice.

What does that mean exactly? I provide aerialists like you:
