Biography

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 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.

Elliana currently, she performs 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. (Think reasonable amounts of glitter, but also classic red lipstick paired with black-and-white stripes!) In her leisure time, she bakes, teaches herself complicated hair braiding styes, watches harrowing Netflix documentaries, and voraciously reads mystery and sci-fi books.
