Luisina grew up in a loving family in the suburbs of Buenos Aires, Argentina, spending her days between school, the gymnastics club, her sister's concerts, playing piano with her mom, drinking mates with friends and wandering around theaters both on and off stage.
At the age of 13, Luisina saw a circus show where she fell in love at first sight with the German Wheel and from that moment on they never separated again. Hand in hand with Leandro Aita, Luisina made her first turns around the wheel at the Espacio Zero circus school in Buenos Aires. After high school, Luisina was fortunate enough to train and work side by side with one of her first and greatest inspirations, Wolfgang Bientzle - an icon in the history of German Wheel as a sport and as an art - who generously invited her to further her practice at CircEsteem, a youth circus school in Chicago, USA.
After 4 years of this enriching experience, Luisina continued traveling the world with her wheel as a professional circus artist, performing on stages in various cities (Abu Dhabi, South Korea, Japan, China, United States and Argentina), also experimenting with other disciplines such as Cyr Wheel and German Wheel as a duo.
At the age of 24, responding to a need for new artistic challenges and internal exploration, Luisina decided to temporarily withdraw her focus from work in order to place it on her training and growth as an artist. She is currently in her third and final year at the National Circus School of Montréal, under the program of Generalist Artist in German Wheel and Cyr Wheel (Hula Hoop Manipulation as a complementary discipline), with completion date in June 2019.
Once graduated, Luisina hopes to continue learning and growing as an artist and human, with the wish of contributing something positive to the world. She would like to combine different art forms collaborating with friends, her sister and other artists, meet new people with whom to play and create, spend time with her family, and preserve a curious spirit, being surprised and inspired by the small and great inexplicable wonders of life.
