Hayley Cabral began artistic gymnastics at the age of 4 at Junior Gym Lyons Gymnastics Academy. She trained in competitive gymnastics until she began performing as a contortionist at the age of 14.
Hayley received her circus arts training from several institutions, including Circus Smirkus and Flexible Body Art Las Vegas, under the guidance of Cirque Du Soleil Mongolian contortionist and Master instructor Otgo Waller. She also specifically studied the art of Russian handbalancing under the direction of Marika Delibaldova of Moscow State Circus & Ringling Brothers.
In her early career as a teenage contortionist Hayley performed for many Cirque style productions, including “Cirque Berzerk” at the LA Nokia Live theater, Cirque Du Soleil Special Events “Kooza” , the International Contortion Convention in Las Vegas, including several corporate events and music festivals until she was offered a long term contract to travel with Californias largest Big Top Circus, Circus Vargas! Hayley toured Circus Vargas for 2 years as a solo artist performing her handbalancing contortionist act. It is also where she met her husband, Hilario Cabral, and began her education in Argentinian folklore dancing and Martial Arts.
As a couple, Hayley and Hilario created their own production company, “Master Gaucho Productions” where they produced their original show “Rhythm of Argentina” based on their true life stories. The show is currently being performed on prestigious cruise ships around the world, including Princess Cruises, Oceania Cruise Line, Regent Cruises, Celebrity Cruises, Holland America and Silver Sea Cruises. “Rhythm of Argentina” has been presented on over 27 different cruise ships in the past 5 years!
