Elizabeth Overton is a hand to hand coach and professional performer based out of the San Diego Circus Center. She and her partner Matt Fields-Johnson have been working together for six years and have been at SDCC for the last five. Jean-Luc Martin was their first hand to hand coach, and they have since been greatly influenced by the coaching of Jerome Le Baut and Sergey Volodin of Cirque du Soleil.
Liz has trained hand balancing under Jean-Luc for the last five years and combines this knowledge with her experience as a competitive gymnast to create a well-rounded approach to hand to hand. She fosters a safe and focused environment for all her students while her attention to detail and desire to help individuals understand their skills means that each person’s potential can be maximized with hard work.
