Christian Atayde Stoinev is a fifth generation performer born on December 4, 1991 in Sarasota, Florida. With a fluency in three languages- Bulgarian, Spanish, and English - Christian has traveled the world performing in front of Princes, International audiences, and renowned public officials.

Christian Performed in his first international festival in Monaco in 2005 with his hand-balancing act with his beloved dog, Scooby. Christian would compete in his second festival just three years later. Being young was not going to stop him from succeeding, in 2005 he received the Grand Prize of Prince Rainier III, the Coupe "K Bronze" and awarded with the Coupe Foundation Turquoise presented by The French - Mexican Consul in Monaco at the International Festival “Premier Rampe” in Monaco.

Christian continued his international presence by performing at the 2008 Festival di Latina, where Professor Leonid Kostyuk presented him with the Special Prize of The Great Moscow State Circus. Christian’s international status has been recognized in international newspapers such as El Diario (Mexico), Nice Matin (France), Monac-Matin (Monaco), and Il Nouva (Italy).

Christian’s commitment to the performing arts began in Mexico at the age of 5.  At the age of 13, Christian was one of the youngest acts in the renowned Big Apple Circus. Since 2001, Christian has been a company member of the Big Apple Circus touring throughout the United States. Christian has been featured in the New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald, The Columbus Dispatch, and The Baltimore Sun.

Although Christian has primarily focused on live performances, it has not stopped him from appearing in TV commercials and Television Specials worldwide. Whether it has been performing as the opening act on Britney Spear’s “Circus” tour, appearing on MTV en Español, America’s Got Talent, or Martha Stewart Live; Christian’s athleticism, personality, and high quality live performing skills are paramount.

Christian’s commitment to performing arts thrives, but he also remains focused on his goal of earning a degree in Broadcast Journalism at Illinois State University. Since beginning his college career at the age of 17, Christian has also developed a solo hand-balancing routine that he has performed in Dayton, Ohio and Dallas, Texas as part of Cirque Musica. He has also performed solo at events in Chicago, Illinois and College Basketball Halftime performances. 

Christian's professionalism, modesty, and respect are unique qualities that are leading him to a promising future. Following his anticipated graduation in May of 2013, Christian will become the first in his family to earn a college degree. Following graduation at the age of 21, Christian plans on continuing to perform around the world.
