Elke Uhd is a passionate, young and energetic contemporary circus performer, currently based in Berlin, Germany but back in her hometown due to Covid. Elke grew up in a small town on the coast of Western Australia and was heavily immersed in dance, theatre and circus from a young age. At age 17, Elke made the decision to further her artistic passion in circus by studying at the National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA). Here she discovered a thriving passion for Dance trapeze and Cyr wheel. She spent her three years at NICA working towards seamlessly blending her past experiences with theatre and dance into her study of these two disciplines. Elke graduated in November 2015, and has been working throughout Australia, America and Europe in the years since.
