Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, Lila has been surrounded by culture and art her whole life. After college, Lila completed a yoga teacher training in 2010 which opened the doors to a circus life she never knew she was meant to live. She met acrobats and aerialists through the shared passion of yoga and knew right away that this was where she belonged. After training for two years in New Orleans, she moved to Portland, Oregon for an apprenticeship at Pendulum Aerial Arts. Through rigorous training with some of the finest aerialists in the northwest, including guests artists from past and current Cirque du Soleil productions, Lila excelled in gaining the strength and finesse of a proper performer. She is now training with a world renown hand balancer at Night Flight Aerial to master her ground skills. Lila resides in Portland as a freelance aerialist, contortionist and acrobat, but will always have a little Nawlins flare.


Lila can perform for parties, events, conventions, festivals, and nightclubs and be part of the ambiance for the night.
