Originally from Wollongong NSW, Corie Hurry is a circus artist best known for his performance of handstands on a stack of chairs.
Corie was 14 when he picked up some juggling balls and after mastering all the backyard basics joined up with Circus Monoxide's Half High Circus in 2007 teaching children in exchange for lessons in acrobatics. After 6 years of teaching and performing in his hometown, Corie was accepted to train at Australia's National Institute of Circus Arts in Melbourne where he graduated a specialist in Chair-handstands and Chinese Pole.
Corie has since toured Australia and New Zealand performing and putting up circus tents with Circus Aotearoa, Hudson's Circus and The Great Moscow Circus among others.
With over 14 years of experience coaching circus, Corie is considered to be an exceptional all-rounder.
His dream is to facilitate, inspire and nurture creative energy in the next generation of performers.
