A gymnast from the age of 4, Elena Marina has been performing most of her life. Elena trained in Sports Acrobatics, teaching her the essential disciplines; flexibility, strength and poise.
At the age of 9, stepping into the world of Circus was a natural progression, combining her lifetime of skills with this wonderful art form, and quickly took to becoming an aerial artiste. She continued her training at the Circus Maniacs Youth Circus for 7 years where she learnt not only the art of aerial but plate spinning, unicycle, jugging, stilt walking, wire walking and much more.
Elena now specializes in aerial silks, rope and hoop, varying in different styles from traditional to cirque to corporate.
In the years that followed, Elena spent her time traveling the world to perform at corporate events and competing in famous international circus competitions; winning a medal at Les Pistes Aux Espoirs in 1998.
