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 and the New England Center for Circus Arts, Dwoira moved to San Francisco, to hone her skills and specialize in contortion, aerial hoop and tissu.
At Circus Center she trained in tissu, hoop and static trapeze and spent 3 months in Elena Panova's Professional Aerial Program. She also trained in contortion with Mongolia's Golden Girl Serchmaa Byambaa and 3-time Guinness World Record Holder Leslie Tipton.
In 2010, she performed solo contortion in the opening sequence of the Dave Chappelle Comedy Night in Oakland, CA, and and has then toured with several shows, including internationally in nightclubs, with traditional and contemporary circuses in Canada and Japan, as well as several US tours, 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, specializing in contortion, aerial hoop and aerial tissu.
