About Li Liu

Li was born in Shenyang in the northeast of China where she began her acrobatic training at the age of six. The following year she was selected to attend The Chinese National Circus School in Beijing where she followed a rigorous training schedule until she was 16, launching a lengthy career of acrobatic excellence.

Since then, Li has built on China’s long history of acrobatics, winning numerous awards and earning worldwide praise for her master skills in Chinese plate spinning, foot juggling, hand balancing, and artistic cycling. In 1995, Li and her sister Liu Ying were awarded “The Golden Lion” prize at China’s famous Wu Qiao International Circus Festival for their duo hand balancing act.
