Amy Nash grew up climbing things. She remembers, as a child, tying sheets up to a bare doorframe in the basement and climbing them long before she knew about aerial. So when Cirque du Soleil came in to town, showing Amy that circus could be a career and not just a dream, she went for it. She began training at Aerial Dance Over Denver, learning in an unusually accelerated rate. A year and a half later, she applied for the New England Center For Circus Art's Professional Training program and was accepted. Amy completed the training program in May, 2012, rocketing into the world with a highly entertaining and fun fabric act as well as a dramatic and thought-provoking tippy lyra act.
She came full circle, returning to Denver for perform locally and nationally, as well as becoming the most technically advanced teacher at the place where it all began: Aerial Dance Over Denver.
She then made the move to LA, where she joined the Professional Group at Le Studio, home to Le Petit Cirque. She is currently boosting her skills in theater and movement with masters from all over the world, as well as creating a stunning and 'addictive' hula hoops act.
When not in Los Angeles, Amy can be found in her other base, The New England Center for Circus Arts, challenging impossibilities.
