This is a podcast with a difference where all the guests are from the world of alternative performance; burlesque dancers, illusionists, fetish acts, drag queens, character acts, circus clowns, sword swallowers & special FX make up artists.

This week I chat to Jess Abouzied / Aerial Acrobatic and Circus Skills Teacher

Jess quickly realised that her love of performing and being upside down was a perfect match for circus. With the career goal of being ‘professionally awesome’ she enrolled on Greentop’s full time Circus In Performing Arts course and has been unstoppable ever since.

Now an artist and tutor, Jess specialises in aerial acrobatics across multiple apparatus such as silks and hoop. She also likes to sew costumes, play with fire, and pretend to be a gymnast. From glamorous corporate events to comedy characters, she performs all over the country but is rarely found with two feet on the ground.
