Adriana Llanes

Adriana began exploring the world of circus arts in 2010 with the introduction of hoop dance and circus jams in the city of Santa Cruz, California. Soon after she grew addicted to acroyoga and fire dance where she trained weekly in doubles and triples acro acts, fire fans, and fire hoop.

In 2012, aerial silks stole her heart away and Adriana began her aerial adventure with Flight Club Fitness on flying trapeze, lyra, and specializing on aerial silks.
