THE HUMAN CANNON BALL What’s that overhead? Feel the whoosh of the human cannonball on your face as Elliana flies gracefully overhead. Where in the world did such courage come from? Well, Elliana did not begin her circus ambition to be shot out of a cannon. She honed her skills, went to college and also studied at the Ecole de Cirque de Quebec in Quebec City, Canada, where she spent a year perfecting her circus education. Then serendipity played into her career plans when she heard about the search for the next Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey® Human Cannon Ball. Now at the age of 20-years-old, she is currently the youngest female cannonball in the world.
