Our featured performer of the month is Elliana Grace with her one woman show: HEARTBREAK, HUMOR and HOOPS!
Elliana Grace has been in the circus since before she could even walk. Her first entry into a circus ring was on the back of an elephant at the age of 2 weeks! Raised in St. Louis, MO as a member of Circus Harmony’s élite youth troupe – the St. Louis Arches – with additional education at the École de Cirque de Québec; she has performed and taught in Montreal, Israel, Dubai, and all across America. She has extensive experience in such disciplines as lyra: (solo and duo), static and flying trapeze, tumbling, hula hoops, bareback horse riding, upside-down loop walking, and more. In 2013, she toured as Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey’s youngest-ever female human cannonball.
Catch her 30-minute one-woman show at the City Museum of St. Louis. Her performance style combines skill, technical precision, and wholesome entertainment values with comedy and Broadway-style musicality and showmanship.
