COACHES:

Elizabeth Fluharty (Aerialist on Silk & Rope, Acrobalance)  has been learning, performing, and teaching a variety of circus arts including partner acrobatics, aerial silks, aerial rope, and stilts for the last 10+ years. Thanks to more than a decade of saying “yes” to all kinds of crazy adventures, the circus has become her life and passion. You can often find her teaching classes at Mountain Shadows Aerial Silks and the Millibo Art Theatre, where she loves helping other people find their inner and outer strength through circus arts.

Jim Jackson (Clown, Millibo Artistic Director, Writer) has been adventuring in circus and theatre since 1976. Along the way he has had a great deal of fun directing, creating, and performing in original productions for children and adults. He is an acclaimed clown who has toured extensively with his award-winning solo shows at New York’s Lincoln Center, Washington D.C.’s Kennedy Center, London’s Royal Festival Hall , the Edinburgh Fringe, a food court in Singapore, and at thirty five International Children’s Festivals throughout the world. Known for his collaborative work as a director and writer, Jim has created national touring shows with Tomas Kubinek, Robert Astle, and Rebecca Buric. He wishes to thank Birgitta De Pree and his three daughters for his best comic material.

Christopher Keller (Magician, Juggler, Clown) a recently returned Springs native is both an artist and an educator. After receiving an education in Circus arts from the circus center of San Francisco he went on tour both nationally and internationally. You can now find him teaching gymnastics or circus, projecting, and spending time with his two wonderful dogs Max and Harly.
