© 2014 Francesca Carlson



Francesca's love of gymnastics, coupled with a fitness and dance background, enabled her to speedily progress on to aerial arts. Starting with pole-fitness, Francesca then moved to explore other niche disciplines - such as Aerial Net.


Francesca's main passion is aerial net. The freedom of flow and artistic movement and interpretation is what motivates Francesca's keen interest in this area - it is however strength and flexibility required for hand balancing and contortion that continues to fuel Francesca's own personal training drive.


Usually seen training 6 days a week and 3 hours a day, Francesca is continually pushing herself to reach new levels of success and artistic achievement.


Francesca has been performing various disciplines for many years in many countries such as; Lebanon, UK, Ireland, UAE, Bahrain and Portugal.


Francesca has had the opportunity to showcase her skills at The Dubai Fitness Festival, the world famous Meydan race course and on Physique TV.
