Selyna's love for this job and lifestyle came natural.
Selyna grew up between her hometown in Italy where she attended school and where another important figure in her career development was living, her grandpa Tito Reyes. A man who, as a former circus performer who loved circus (and football!) above all ,made sure to transmit his passion to the granchild.
When Selyna wasn't home she was traveling around Europe with her parents witnessing, from a very early age, their performances, along as some of the best shows from the variety and circus world.
It was only a matter of time before she would follow them in their footsteps.
Selyna Bogino was born on 27th April, 1990 in a small town in the north of Italy by a family of circus performers.
Her parents are, Consuelo Reyes (Spanish Footjuggler, considered the "Queen of Antipodists", the only performer in her discipline to be winning the National Circus Prize given by the King of Spain) and Paolo Bogino (Italian multiskilled Acrobat, better known for his bycicle act with his brothers "The Bogino Brothers" and who now performs as a Comedian).
At the age of 6 years old her father began to teach her the basic disciplines and circus skills that would serve her in the years to come.
And at the age of 8, she started with her intesive footjuggling training, inspired by the work of her mum and still under the guidance of her dad.
After several years of pure discipline work, Selyna started to perform in 2005 with her solo act, which was created by herself, her parents and the ex-prima ballerina Kate Smyth from the Moulin Rouge in Paris (now choreographer of several circus shows and acts).
Starting from the very beginning at a very high level, Selyna achieved to perform in many succesfull variety and diner shows in the german scene, such as the renown Tigerpalast Varietè in Frankfurt, the Hansa Theater Varietè in Hamburg, the Roncalli's Apollo Varietè in Duesseldorf , the Witzigmann & Roncalli's Bajazzo in Koeln.

From that kind of visibility Selyna got in contact with the juggling convention world and in 2013 she was invited to be part of the Gala Show at EJC (European Juggling Convention) in Toulouse, an event hosting every year thousands of people.
During this time another side of her career starts flourishing.
Even considering her roots are deep into the circus world, Selyna has been rarely performing in circuses until that moment. It's only after her performances at the Weihnachts Circus in Offenburg in 2013 that she starts to navigate into this branch of her career, becoming quickly a regular presence in some of the best circus rings of Europe, such as Circus Krone Bau in Munich, Circo Mundial in Spain, Circo Moira Orfei in Italy and Circus Flic Flac in Nuerenberg.
Selyna starts to work in circuses also overseas, touring in 2016 in California with Flynn Creek Circus and in 2019 in Perù and Chile with the company Prodartes and their "Gran Circo de Rusia".
Not satisfied with one act, Selyna developed in 2010 a Hula Hoop show by herself.
One year later a video of her unique footjuggling skills with 5 basketballs recorded during a practice session, became viral on Youtube and gave her abilities a new kind of visibility, with her routine being seen all over the world and counting to this days more than 1,8 million views!
As a result of her hard work in the circus community, it should be no surprise that her career finally bring her in a country where this artform is highly valued: Russia.
In 2018 she's invited with her foot-juggling act as one of the partecipants of the International Circus Festival of Circus Nikulin in Moscow and wins two prices at once: the Planet Circus Award and a Silver Elephant.
With so many achievements in her young career Selyna has extensively proved to be a performer of great talent, who adds value in every show she's part of with her unique talent and stage presence.
No matter if the show is under a top, a roof, open-air or online.
