Anna Roudenko was born in Krasnodar, Russia straight into a circus family. Her mother and father were both well know performers in the Moscow Circus. So naturally she was destined to follow their paths.
At the age of 7 her parents enrolled her into sports acrobatics where she trained for 11 years until she was 18 years old. During that time she won numerous global events including 1st Place in the Championship of Russia.
At 18 years old she was invited by Cirque Du Soleil to join their world famous show in Las Vegas “O”. She then performed there in a 8 girl banquine act called “Barge” for 7 years ( 2001-2008 ).
After “O” she joined the another Cirque Du Soleil production “Dralion” where she did something different changing from her usual acrobatic role to playing a character throughout the whole show.
Anna’s act combines contortion, hand balancing, and dance. All is combined with an elegant modern touch. The original music was composed for her by her husband Vladik.
