About Jordan Garcia:

My name is Jordan Garcia. I am a teacher and circus performer. My main discipline is Handbalancing, but I also practice acrobatics, parkour, and aerial straps. I have no background in gymnastics or dance, nor have I ever had coaches with me for every training session. I have gone to workshops and learned much from teachers, performers, and other people who love training, but day to day I train by myself. I want to show people that with enough passion and hard work anyone can achieve high levels of skill in whatever they choose to do.
