Kalina grew up barefoot in the mountains and dancing with horses. She found circus in 2009 at All or Nothing Aerial Dance Company in Edinburgh, Scotland, where she quickly became fascinated with trapeze. In 2011 she studied at Rogelio Rivel circus school in Barcelona, Spain, before being accepted to the New England Center for Circus Arts Professional Training Program which she graduated from in 2014. Kalina specializes in single point dance trapeze, static trapeze and modern dance. She is passionate about both the technical and artistic aspects of circus and enjoys sharing these through her performances and as a teacher.
When her feet are on the ground she is most likely to be found sewing costumes or at a pottery wheel where she can combine her appreciation for the creative and the functional.
