Following a childhood of tree-climbing, avid monkey bar play, and recreational gymnastics, Jana found her home in the world of circus arts at age 15. She has studied flying trapeze and aerial arts at TSNY DC ever since, specializing in flying, fabric, duo static trapeze, and (more recently) rope. Jana has been coaching both fabric and flying trapeze since 2017, and she has performed on fabric and duo static trapeze with Sweet Spot Aerial Productions at the Atlas Theater in Washington, DC. Outside of circus arts, Jana is mere inches away from completing her undergraduate degree in Mathematics, and she teaches math and science as an independent homeschool instructor. Passionate about education, both academic and circus-related, Jana is dedicated to providing a safe, supportive, and challenging learning environment for students of all ages, experience levels, and backgrounds.
