She founded the “Lisa Giobbi Movement Theatre” in 1991, two years after tying the knot with Guilfoyle. The company has performed in opera houses and theaters across America and Europe. 

The theater has also performed in popular festivals and sports arenas including La Scala in Milan, The Joyce Theater in NY, La Fenici in Venice, Santa Rosalia Festival in Palmero, Frequent Flyers Festival, and Boston Dance Umbrella Aerial Festivals. 


Being an early innovator of aerial dance, Giobbi’s aerial dance work has been presented in prestigious theaters including Apollo in Düsseldorf, Wintergarten Variety in Berlin, and the Friedrichbau in Stuttgart.


With a keen interest in artistic fields, she attained her BFA from Juilliard. She then graduated from the Peck School of Arts, the University of Wisconson with an MFA degree.

After joining MOMIX in 1983, Giobbi performed with Moses Pendleton across America, Asia, and Europe for eight years. 

Besides festivals and theaters, the acclaimed aerial artist also choreographed for movies including “What Dreams May Come” and “Temptesta.”


Giobbi’s creative pursuits do not stop at theater--she is also the founder and creative director at “Lisa Giobbi Jewelry” which creates jewelry inspired by her career as an aerial dancer and choreographer. 

According to Giobbis’ official website, each piece of jewelry is hand-sculpted in wax so they are not meant to be “perfect.”

Many of Giobbi’s pieces are inspired by the arts and cultures that she comes across during the tours with her dance company.



Guilfoyle and Giobbi live a creative and happy life together. Their marriage has been going strong for 30 years now, a feat so rare in Hollywood.
