Veera Kaijanen was born in 1987

in Helsinki, Finland.

She is a fierce and elegant 'Sirkustaiteilija' like she is called in her native language Finnish.

The first photos of Veera with a hula hoop are from her being only 4 years old. A short while later she heard about a local youth circus called Linnanmäki Circusschool and asked her parents, if she could join.

It was a perfect match and only a year later she choreographed and performed her very first hula hoops act. 

Years passed by and Veera secretly wished to become a professional performer to be able to make her living with hula hoops and circus artistry. Alongside hoops she studied tight wire dancing.

Veera mastered her techniques of both diciplines in Academie Fratellini in Paris (FR) studying with the bests; Manolo dos Santos, Agathe Olivier, Christian Malguires and Elena Taraimovitch as her main coaches. 

She graduated in 2011 and has been touring all around the world ever since.

Veera has worked with prestigious companies like Cirque du Soleil, MSC Cruises and Pixar Animation Studios

and has mesmerized audience in productions of Circus Monti (CH), GOP-Variete Theatre (DE), Wallmans Dinnershow (DK), Wintervariete Balingen (DE), Schmidt's Tivoli & Theater (DE), Winterspektakel Hamburg (DE), Compagnie Tempo (FR) and many more.
