Pinja Seppälä

Circus Artist


I'm a multidisciplinary circus artist from Finland,
specialized in Hand-balance, Lollipop Lyra and Aerials.

I have been performing professionally around the world since 2013 as a solo artist, part of different duos and bigger performing groups.
For example in
GOP Varieté-Theaters in Germany,
Monti's Varieté in Switzerland,
show production and events in Okada Manila, Philippines
show productions with Phoenix Fire Dancers and UniFlow in USA and Turkey,
and many gala shows for example in Brazil, Turkmenistan, Abu Dhabi and G20 meeting in Russia.


I was born in 1993 in Tampere, Finland. I started gymnastics when i was 4,5years old and after 5 years of Artistic Gymnastics and 6 years of Aesthetic Group Gymnastics I wanted to try something new so in 2009 I joined the Sorin Sirkus youth circus.
At first I tried many disciplines but soon I noticed that handstands, contortion and aerial hoop were my thing. I was part of the Sorin Sirkus performing group in 2009-2012.
In 2010 I started training with my duo partner, Milla Peijari, in Sorin Sirkus as a contortion and aerial hoop duo. We participated in Finland's got Talent in 2012 and we got in to the finals. Since then we have been performing professionally around Finland and abroad as Duo Minja.
Along with duo I trained hand-balancing as my solo discipline.
I had my first hand-balancing solo performance in 2015.
Lollipop Lyra act is my newest solo creation. I tried it the first time in the spring of 2018 and i fell in love. I wanted to create my own unique style combining pole dancing moves with aerial hoop and challenge myself to do something totally different to handstands.


Because of my long gymnastics background I have found a beautiful way to combine power demanding tricks with flexibility and my own personality.
Smooth movements, strong stage presence, fleixibility and skills; this is me!

All discilpines: Hand-balance, Lollipop Lyra, Hand to Hand, Partner Acrobatics, Contortion solo/duo, Aerial Hoop solo/duo, Aerial Straps solo/duo, Aerial Silks, Aerial Chandelier/Other big aerial props, Waterbowl, Acrobatics, Pole Dancing, Dancing, Fire Dancing and Skipping Ropes

I'm always open for learning and creating something new!

Besides my solo career I work as a duo - Duo Minja.
And as a part of a fire dancing group - UniFlow.
