Emelie was a seven-year-old little girl when she had her first encounter with the world of circus. It was love at first sight.
She grew up in Norrköping, Sweden, and in her hometown there was a circus where you could go and train after school. She was soon a part of “Olana truppen”, an elite group of girls doing hand to hand and pyramids on each other. Olana was for many years her second family and together they performed all over Europe and in festivals such as the International Circus Festival City of Latina.
2002, when Emelie was 12 years old, they performed in Melodifestivalen on TV and that year they also got the great honour to do a show for the swedish king at the Nobel Banquet in Stockholm.
When the other girls decided to go their own paths in life, Emelie devoted her teenage years to her love for dancing and was spending her days in the studio taking ballet, jazz and contemporary classes. As she turned 18, she was asked to come and work with the fantastic circus perfomer, Erik Ivarsson. She was grateful to once again be a part of the circus life and decided that she was there to stay. This was when she created her first solo act and with her aerial silk she is still traveling the globe, performing at beautiful venues all over the world.
Today Emelie is also working in a Rollerskating duo together with her American life partner, Royer. They are honoured to have been coached by Roma & Sven, one of the best skating acts of all time. Emelie and Royer have worked for names such as Wintergarten and Roncalli and are proud to be the only rollerskating act in Scandinavia.
