About Corie

The face of Milk Crate Circus


Originally from Wollongong NSW, Corie Hurry is a circus artist best known for his performances handstanding 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.

Corie now has over 13 years experience circus coaching and is considered to be an exceptional all-rounder. Corie has coached for Spaghetti Circus, Circus Monoxide, NICA Short courses, Little Devils Circus and BURGH healthy hub.

Corie's dream for the future is a venue based programme dedicated to quality circus coaching. An inclusive hub for a community of performing artists rich with knowledge to pass on and with the passion and facility to inspire and nurture the creative energy of the next generation.
