Ylva is a Danish-born contemporary circus artist, specialized in contortion and static trapeze.
She developed her passion for the trapeze playing on the one that was hanging in her childhood living room, and early on she knew that she wanted to be a trapeze artist. It was also during her childhood that she discovered her extraordinary flexibility.
She later on started at the circus preparation school AFUK. And after 3 years of hard training, she had attained a very high skill level, as well as an unique style in the trapeze, which combines flexibility, strength, and elegance.
After finishing AFUK she was enrolled into AMOC (Academy of Modern Circus), where she decided to put her main focus on contortion, to also develop a strong ground act.
Ylva is now both an elite contortionist and trapeze artist, who time after time, amazes, seduces and enchants her audience, when she snakes her body in impossible ways, and combines it with her sensual elegance.
She has succesfully been part of variete shows, newcircus performances, highly recognized theatre pieces, the dinnershow at Wallmans, and multible commercial events.
