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 and much more...
Elena now specialises 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. Whilst performing around the world, Elena proved she was capable of more than just her athleticism by obtaining a BSc (Hons) in Sport and Exercise Science from Nottingham Trent University.
Elena trained in varying dance styles including Flamenco, Contemporary, and Ballet. She is also a trained classical pianist, giving her a unique understanding of rhythm and melody. Further to her physical and academic achievements, Elena is also a professional model; performing in fashion shows, catwalk, photographic and promotional corporate events around the UK.
