Eliana began her training in classical ballet at a young age, attending programs at American Ballet Theatre, Boston Ballet, and Complexions Contemporary Ballet. She went on to attain her BFA in Dance & French from Fordham University / Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, while also performing with the Alvin Ailey company.
After graduating, Eliana performed as a principal dancer with several ballet companies in the tri-state area. She discovered aerial while on a break from performing and fell in love immediately. With its freedom & opportunity for expression, she knew she wanted to grow aerial into a career. Her first performance was here at Om Factory in a student showcase! Looking to expand her knowledge and further her training, Eliana began studying different aerial apparatuses around NYC.
Eliana has worked as an aerial performer for Company XIV, AeraDance, Cirque Central, American Circus Theater, and as a freelance performing artist. She performs both ambient and feature acts on lyra, lollipop, hammock, aerial heart, and cube.
