Matt Fields-Johnson has always been a lover of adventure and movement that has fallen in love with partner acrobatics. As an infant, he would vault out of the crib and onto the floor before he could walk, so it is no surprise that he has found a home in circus. He currently travels the country teaching and training acrobatics with his partner, Elizabeth Overton.

Matt brings an unassuming strength to his practice and teaching. His articulate, concise coaching holds space for students to grow, puts them at ease, and sets them up for success. Matt graduated the Acro Revolution Teacher Training in 2014, studied Dutch Acrobatics at Pitch Catch Circus, and is currently training at the San Diego Circus Center under Jean Luc Martin. Matt and Liz also trained with renowned hand to hand coach Jerome le Baut in Montreal. Matt loves to train, but more than anything he loves the friendships that are formed within the acrobatics community. Come train with Matt to see your practice excel and your community grow.
