Power, passion and charisma drive the art and style of Lisanna Paloma’s corde lisse. Seen in shows with famed singer MeatLoaf, San Diego Symphony Orchestra, and Cirque du Soleil, to name a few, Lisanna’s strong technique and talent has led her to perform at a prominent level in numerous aerial and ground acrobatic disciplines in addition to her speciality of corde lisse. Her international and collegiate background in artistic gymnastics granted her a full-ride Division 1 athletic scholarship to Northern Illinois University where she competed and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design.
Recently, her strength and heartfelt performance delighted over 3 million spectators in a tour around the world with Cirque du Soleil’s TORUK-The First Flight, inspired by Academy Award-winning filmmaker James Cameron's Avatar. Performing in 27 countries as one of the prominent acrobatic characters, Lisanna also took on the responsibility of Artist Coach, in which she led two of the acrobatic acts. With her intense focus and commitment, she acquired the technical and artistic vision essential to the career of an artist and the enrichment of a production. TORUK is now known as the #1 grossing touring circus show in the world.
Further expanding her career, Lisanna has earned her international Certified Personal Trainer degree and Fitness Nutrition Specialization through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, complementing her decades of first-hand fitness experience with comprehensive studies of scientific principles and techniques dedicated to the health and fitness of all individuals.
Privileged to perform, act, create, collaborate, and devote herself to the defining moment in which the spotlight hits her face at thirty feet in the air, Lisanna will continue to embrace and reflect the energy of the audience and her art. With absolute joy, she strives to embody all that which makes an artist whole.
Lisanna is currently performing with Cirque du Soleil's KÁ at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV.
