I have always grown up being in the spotlight. From the very beginning, I was dancing around and putting on mini-shows for my family in Russia. I was always amazed by music and circus, but after moving to America, music was the only thing around. I started taking ballet and performed in several shows. Once high school ended, I moved to Kansas City to train with KC Ballet. During the time of searching for my next path, I was reintroduced to circus!

I was so inspired and still longed to be in front of an audience. 22 seemed a bit late, but I began practicing aerial, contortion and hand balancing on my own for hours every day. After a year, my body was doing things I never could have imagined! I can now be found in the circus and burlesque scene performing rigorous ground and aerial acts.

Whether it is a scandalous cabaret, birthday party, nightclub, or street performance, I strive to bring something memorable to my audience, leaving them inspired and amazed.
