CIRCUS JUVENTAS WELCOMES GEMMA KIRBY
Gemma began her career performing trapeze and hoops as a member of the High Flying Pages. In 2012, her circus dreams led her to the world-famous Big Apple Circus, soaring high above the sawdust ring on the flying trapeze. Most recently, Gemma headlined as the Human Cannonball on the final season of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, and she even had the honor of performing the stunt live on The Late Show with David Letterman!
As a Circus Juventas coach, Gemma imparted fierce fearlessness in the flying monkeys of OZ in CJ’s 2013 production. She is thrilled to be re-joining the staff of Circus Juventas as an Artistic Department Associate as well as a coach.
