Coach, Choreographer and Director 

Personal Training & Act Direction

My interest in the expansion of our circus and varietè community has motivated my work as a coach, choreographer and director. On the one hand, I enjoy the exploration of technique, alignment, and injury prevention, while exploring concept creation and story building.


I find innovative movement techniques to draw out the individual artist while pulling on the history of visual and performative art forms to find the story and cohesion in the acts and productions you desire to create.

Let me help you find your distinct voice!

"Technically speaking, Elena's understanding of virtually every aerial skill...far more comprehensive than almost any coach I've met. Artistically, Elena has an ability to find what makes you unique and allow that to shine, without allowing her own personal aesthetic to take over. None of her students acts look anything alike..."

"Amazing how much power you get when a good coach fixes your technique! Much appreciation for @elena_brocade's incredible attention to detail and clarity of explanations!"

"I call Elena my trapeze whisperer... her passion for her craft and her students’ success is what made her my first choice coach when social isolation hit."
