Anna began studying circus at a young age, and at 19 began to center her life around it. Starting as a juggler, face painter, and clown, it wasn't long before she found herself taking to the air. At 22, she moved to the Chicago area, where she began practicing aerial acrobatics in earnest at the Actor's Gymnasium and Aloft Circus Arts. At 25, she realized she wanted to make it her career, and began the professional training program at Frequent Flyers Aerial Dance in Boulder, CO. Upon moving home to Milwaukee, Anna created Anna Belle Aerial before founding Cream City Circus in 2019.
