Contortionist | Aerial Hoop Artist | Aerial Tissu Artist
Dwoira Galilea was born in Coney Island, and trained in rhythmic gymnastics from ages 9-13,
and began circus training alongside theatre, dance and vocal training at age 11.
After graduating from the Performing Arts High School in NYC, Dwoira moved to San Francisco, to hone her skills and specialize in contortion, aerial hoop and tissu.
In 2010, she performed solo contortion in the opening sequence of the Dave Chappelle Comedy Night in Oakland, CA, and has performed internationally in nightclubs, with traditional and contemporary circuses, at corporate events, and even on cruise ships.
Believing that appearance is equally as impressive as physical skill, Dwoira is considered by her peers to be a master of elaborate and glamorous hair, as well makeup and wardrobe.
Dwoira specializes in contortion, aerial hoop and aerial tissu.
