Flying Gravity Circus Director Jonathon Roitman, age 27, grew up in the Wilton NH, and attended both the Pine Hill and High Mowing Waldorf Schools for 14 years. His performing career began at Andy's Summer Playhouse, where he performed for seven years, and his first taste of circus was in the Hilltop Circus. During his high school years at High Mowing, his interest in circus, especially juggling and partner acrobatics, continued to grow. He attended Circus Smirkus advanced camp for three summers, and was a founding member of the Flying Gravity Circus. While studying at McGill University in Montreal, Jonathon attended a three-year pre-professional training program at the Verdun Circus School. After obtaining his B.A. in French translation and literature, he studied for four years at the National Circus School in Montreal, majoring in duo juggling. Upon graduating, he performed for a year and a half with the show Rain, by Cirque Eloize. He is currently developing a new hand to hand act at the New England Center of Circus Arts in Brattleboro VT. Besides circus, his interests include foreign languages, books, photography and singing.
