TEACHER

MISS EM-J

Miss Jess and I have worked together since 2010 and some people think that we are twins! I am the mischievous teacher so you will always have fun in my class. We work mainly on performance as I believe that this is a very important part of learning any circus skill.


BIOGRAPHY

Em-J Smith trained at Stella Mann Performing Arts College and has worked professionally as a dancer, model, actress and stilt walker since graduating.

As well as all of these amazing performing skills, Em-J is also a hair and wig stylist and has created many hairstyles for wedding and shows all over the world.

She was a dancer in one of the biggest touring Circuses in Europe, Circus Krone and also at Bloomsbury Big Top. She has worked for DreamWorks Productions for Royal Carribbean and been part of the Sesame Street World Tour. Em-J now tours the U.K. with Danny Foster and the Big Soul Corporation.

Being an extremely confident stilt walker has taken Em-J across the globe, including Luxury Malls an Royal Palaces in the Middle East and Europe and even on top of a mountain in Capri that was only accessible via helicopter! She will be appearing as a stilt walker in the new Disney remake of Aladdin so keep your eyes peeled for her!

Em-J is also an actress and has appeared in many plays and acting productions, including being an actress in London’s Scariest Maze at The London Dungeons.

The children at Showkids Circus will learn a lot from this exceptionally talented ray of sunshine and I am very, very happy that she is on our team.
