NG Headshot Nina Gershy – Business Manager 

A native New Yorker, Nina discovered her love for circus and theatre at an early age. After graduating from Cornell University, Nina was admitted to the New England Center for Circus Arts’ Professional Training Program, where she specialized in Aerial Rope. Nina has performed with Hijinx Music Festival, New York Fashion Week, ABCirque, and Cirque Us. In addition to performing, Nina coaches circus arts across the country. If she’s not performing or teaching, you can probably find her behind her computer doing “circus consulting” (business development) for various circus schools, companies, and artists.
