Since he was born to a circus family, Alan started his traditional training program at the age of 4 with his father and grandfather. However, the more famous member of Alan’s family is his brother who has also been part of ‘AGT.’ Alfredo and Anna Silva made up the knife thrower duo act called Deadly Games.

By the age of 10, he learned trapeze and performed it for three more years. After that, Alan began to perform the Maromba, following his grandfather’s footsteps. It is a high wire act, except for the rope being suspended between springs.

He returned to the air in 1998, changing his act to an Aerial Acrobatic Flying Silks. After two years, he was invited to audition for a Cirque du Soleil show. In 2003, he was asked to join the Cirque du Soleil for a production called Zumanity. Here’s Alan putting on a show.

Alan J Silva Prediction: How Far Will He Go?

Alan has a chance to go far because he is incredibly skilled. However, he has to ensure that the audience roots for him and connects with him beyond the performances. The edge he had going in, is now gone because viewers know how good he is at what he does. However, Alan can take a page out of his brother’s book. Deadly Games always found ways to be creative with what they were doing and Alan has to try the same if he wishes to aim for the grand prize.
