Catherine Jett

Executive Direction | ENSEMBLE 

Catherine Jett is a Chicago-based performer and aerial dance and circus artist. Static trapeze is her first love, and she also enjoys working in other aerial and ground-based disciplines, such as partner acrobatics, duo trapeze, straps, stilt dancing, and physical theater—especially in the context of an ensemble. Catherine’s performances meld raw power and strength with tenderness and emotion, transcending mere spectacle. She has trained in aerial work and acrobatics at Aloft Loft and Frequent Flyers Productions, as well as with coaches based in Montreal and Chicago. When at home in Chicago, Catherine teaches static trapeze at Aloft Circus Arts.
