Amanda Crockett

I’m an actor, clown, circus performer, choreographer and teacher and have performed in over a dozen countries spanning 6 continents. My first gig ever was clowning alongside my Dad at age 9 in my hometown of Portland, Maine. I was hooked. Since then, I created a performed a lead character role for Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson ONE, won an Audience Choice Award at the Krystallpalast in Germany and premiered my solo show, Going Up, in Medellin, Colombia. Other career highlights include teaching kids in the Arctic Circle, arriving on stage by horse-drawn carriage, performing for school children in Botswana and having the legendary Carlos Santana tell me how much he loved my work. I love to teach and have taught master classes in the US, Brazil, Colombia and Australia. As a choreographer, I was Director of Movement & Circus for Emerald City Theater’s Corduroy, have worked one-on-one with circus artists to create and hone their acts, and was a clown and Creative Consultant for Circus Flora. My focus recently has shifted to acting in theater, tv and film, so stay tuned! In my free time, I love to bike, balance on one arm, snuggle with my dogs and have fun adventures with my toddler.
