Ana CerratoHello, and welcome to my site! I am an aerial acrobat and circus artist based in Bristol, UK.

I grew up in Spain and moved to the UK in 2003. My journey to becoming a professional aerialist started after witnessing a  breathtaking aerial show in London in 2004, after which I knew I wanted to pursue a career in circus and more specifically in aerial arts. In 2005 I underwent a two-year professional circus course in Bristol, specialising in silks and corde lisse. Straight out of circus school I landed my first performing job, a contract with a traditional circus in North India which was both challenging and fascinating. I have never looked back.

Back in the UK I started to perform at festivals and corporate events. In 2012 I returned to India, where I worked as head of aerial at Kingdom of Dreams, the first large scale live entertainment theatre in the country featuring a state-of-the-art Bollywood style musical with a fully automated flying system almost twenty meters above the auditorium. I have taken part in big circus productions such as Circus Rocks, a touring show around seaside holiday resorts where I performed corde-lisse alongside an international cast during the Summer season.

In 2013 I flew to Melbourne, Australia where I took private tuition to further hone my aerial hoop skills at NICA, the National Institute for Circus Arts. Since then I have broadened my aerial repertoire with No Fit State Circus in Wales, where I taught aerial classes for over three years.

I currently perform aerial shows around the UK and internationally at corporate events. I am one fourth of Venus Aerial, an aerial troupe comprising four of the UK’s most forthcoming aerial artists, and I am also a regular feature of the Incandescence Circus Productions Christmas shows. Additionally, I have a thriving teaching practice in Bristol, where I teach weekly aerial classes to over 100 students at UWE (University of West of England), Spincity Bristol and the Albany Centre. I have recently joined the Momentum Pole and Aerial team teaching advanced silks and hoop classes in Cheltenham.
