After 5 years as a professional ballerina, Ulia lost her inspiration to continue her career. She went to a few Cirque de Soleil shows and decided that she’d found her path. She attended E’cole Nationale de Cirque in Montreal and studied dance trapeze and contortion. She’s also had the opportunity to learn lyra, juggling, Russian cradle, acro, acting, contortion, handstands and headstands. The people she’s met and trained with from all over the world have inspired her to learn, grow, have more discipline, and create original routines. Her life has opened in ways she never thought was possible. At E’cole Nationale de Cirque she started with Dance Trapeze. Starting with Circus straight out of high school in 2011, she’s been doing it ever since.
