WHO: Jordan’s Primary disciplines are Handbalancing, Acrobatics, and Aerial Straps. He also practices Partner Acrobatics, Duo Straps, and Juggling. He got started practicing handstands at the age of 16, in his home of Nokesville, Virginia using YouTube tutorials for guidance. Once he was 18, he began to attend Handbalancing Workshops with some of the professionals he had admired over the years. During that time he began to branch out and explore of disciplines like Parkour, Rock Climbing, BJJ & MMA, Gymnastics, and more. He left his home in Virginia to come to Charlotte, North Carolina. While street performing he met someone who put him in contact with one of the Nouveau Sud cast members who would later recruit him. Now, along with performing, he travels and teaches Handbalancing workshops across the United States and other countries. 

One of his goals is to show people that with enough passion and hard work anyone can achieve high levels of skill in whatever they choose to do
