Grace Good Biography – Grace Good Wiki
Grace Good is a professional fire dancer, hula hooper, aerial performer and contestant on America’s Got Talent (AGT) 2023. She previously appeared on Ripley’s Believe It or Not. A multi-talented circus performer and instructor based in Nashville, Grace specializes in hula hooping, fire dancing and aerial acrobatics.
Grace is a hula hoop performer and aerialist with Cirque Dreams Production, a world-renowned Cirque Theatrics company. She performed in Cirque Dreams Holidaze this season, a national touring holiday cirque show seen at venues across America including The Fox Theatre and Mohegan Sun Casino.
In May 2019, Grace undertook her first international tour with Cirque Dreams in Japan with Armed Forces Entertainment. She captivated family audiences on USA military bases in Yokota, Misawa, Iwakuni and Okinawa.
She had no background in gymnastics or dance, but described herself as an eccentric child with an array of interests. Grace grew up performing in musical theatre. She also sang and played guitar and piano throughout her childhood. After she graduated from Brentwood High School, Grace found herself at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, watching women dance to music with a hula hoop.
During her second week on campus at Middle Tennessee State University, the photography major found several students hooping in the quad between classes. She wanted to learn just enough tricks before next summer’s festival season, so she could showcase her stunts just for fun.
But her creative obsession evolved into a therapeutic outlet.
“I had anxiety issues and phases of panic attacks where I had to try to figure out what to do with that,” she said. “It was a really rough time, and hula hooping was my clutch. I was at a low point, and I put all my anxiety and depression into hula hooping. It was a hobby but a meditative tool.”
By the end of her freshman year, Grace knew she didn’t want to return to school for a four-year degree. Instead, she got her associate degree in business and ambled on to make the circus into a career move.
Grace cofounded Nashville-based entertainment company Beyond Wings Circus in 2014 and began booking talent across the city. She produced, directed and performed in The Nashville Circus Spectacular, the largest local circus production in Nashville. She has produced and directed many smaller shows throughout the city.
Grace has multiple teacher training certifications from Circus Arts Institute, an American circus educator training program. Since 2016, she currently directs the Nashville Circus Center’s circus education program, where she established the curriculum and showcases. Inspiring those around her, she has taught many workshops across the US in Hula Hoop, Dragon Staff and Aerial Arts.
Grace established the circus and dinner performances at Plaza Mariachi Music City in Nashville in May 2017. She continues to pioneer and intensify the shows as a weekend performer and talent manager. Plaza Mariachi was voted Nashville’s Best Dinner Entertainment in 2019.
The Brentwood native has appeared on News Channel 5, ABC News Channel 2, the Tamron Hall Show, Go-Big Show on TBS, House Hunters, Fox News stations, National NBC News.
Guinness World Record
In 2021, Grace set a new Guinness World Record for a category called “Longest Duration of a Four Hoop Box Split,” with her time of 1:59 shattering the previous record of 1:17.
“It feels amazing to be a world record breaker,” Grace said after her achievement at Plaza Mariachi. “I planned to attempt it last year , but then all the stages closed because of the pandemic.
“Now, as we’re able to begin putting the pandemic in our past, and with American Circus Day [April 3rd, 2021], it just felt like the right time. I think we’re all ready to get back to life, and I wanted to do that in a big way that would inspire others.”
Grace has reached several heights with her acrobats. She performs regularly at Nashville’s Plaza Mariachi, has appeared on stage numerous times in Las Vegas, and has toured internationally with Cirque Dreams, as well as appearing on TV competition shows. Breaking a world record certainly ranks near the top.
