Custom Circus Entertainment: single acts to a full touring show

Nimble Arts was founded by award winning aerialists Elsie Smith & Serenity Smith Forchion, identical twins who specialize in aerial acrobatics including duo and solos in trapeze, silks, rope, hoop and invented apparatus. Acts for Booking

Elsie & Serenity's performing resumes include Cirque du Soleil, Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey, New Pickle Circus, Cirque Le Masque (and many more!) and numerous special event clients. Their gigs take them around the world with their duo and solos aerial acts and they were awarded Special Award at the Wuqiao International Circus Festival in China and a Bronze Medal at the International Festival of Circus in Albacete, Spain.

Nimble Arts' full length contemporary style touring show features an award winning ensemble whose resumes include Cirque Eloize, Circa, Cirque du Soleil, et al. MIRAGE: A Circus Life is a joyful contemplation of what makes community, what is diversity and why we come together. It is comedic and poetic, and based on a freestanding aerial rig so the show sets up easily onstage and in creative spaces indoors and out of doors.

The twins individually 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. They offer an array of Workshops as well as progressive Aerial Teacher Trainings.

In 2007 they founded the New England Center for Circus Arts www.necenterforcircusarts.org. for recreational and professional students. The two continue to teach at NECCA leading the curriculum development and the professional training programs, as well as perform regularly.
