Erika was born in Quebec, Canada. She began her extraordinary journey through the art of dance with her first ballet class, aged 4.After a short career in conventional gymnastics; she soon found her passion as a performing circus artist, soon becoming the youngest and most prominent member of Cirque Eos.
Erika was only 14 when she attended her first European performance at Belgium’s international circus festival “La Piste aux Espoirs”. Her performance marked a stunning start to her international career, winning her the Public’s Choice Award’s, and the Gold Medal. Other tours with major international circuses were to follow – in Canada, the USA, Europe, Middle and South America.
In 2003, Erika became a freelance artist, receiving awards from the most prestigious world-class festivals and building a successful career in the niche market of very exclusive events worldwide.
When she is not touring for worldwide performances, Erika lives between Milan, Italy and Quebec, Canada where she continues to push her own boundaries, and those of “Nouveau Cirque”, to create the amazing spectacles for which she is loved around the world.
