Gemma is an American dancer and circus performer. She began studying aerial and acrobatic arts at Circus Juventas in 2002 and was instilled with an insatiable passion for high-flying stunts. 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. Barnum & Bailey Circus, and she even had the honor of performing the stunt live on The Late Show with David Letterman.
