Custom Circus Entertainment: single acts to full productions
- - Founded by award winning aerialists Elsie Smith & Serenity Smith Forchion, identical twins who specialize in aerial acrobatics.
-- Based in Brattleboro, Vermont USA but we travel the world!

Elsie & Serenity's performing resumes include Cirque du Soleil's Saltimbanco, Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey, New Pickle Circus, Cirque Le Masque, and numerous special event clients. Their gigs take them around the world with their duo trapeze and duo fabric acts, as well as solos on aerial apparatus. Serenity also performs a partner handbalancing act with her husband, Bill Forchion. Among their honors as performers the sisters won a Special Award at the Wuqiao International Circus Festival in China and a Bronze Medal at the International Festival of Circus in Albacete, Spain.

The sisters founded Nimble Arts to represent themselves and a small group of high level performers who they book for events regionally and around the world.

As well as solo acts and custom event entertainment, Nimble Arts books their company touring show Ruckus. Based on a freestanding aerial rig, the show sets up in most spaces and has sold out audiences all over the United States.

The twins choreograph and teach for circus, dance & theater companies and schools. Serenity helped found San Francisco's Circus Center & was Pilates captain for Cirque du Soleil where she worked closely with physical therapists to promote injury prevention & rehabilitation. Elsie has a coach's certification in trampoline & has choreographed for the UGA Dance department, Circus Smirkus, Umo Ensemble, Pilobolus & Sea World, among others.

In 2007 they founded the New England Center for Circus Arts for recreational and professional students. The two continue to teach at NECCA which is a not for profit organization, as well as perform regularly.
