SISTERS : Erdenesuvd and
Buyankhishig were both born in Ulaanbator/Mongolia. When Erdenesuvd
was a child, her father had the mind set for her to be a concert pianist.

little gymnastics and lots of contortion. She then attended Mongolian
States Circus for training under one of the greatest Mongolian
contortionists and teachers, Majigsuren, to perfect the art of
By the age of 12 years she was performing all over
Mongolia, Japan and Europe. By the age of 14 she was already a professional
artist working in shows all over the world. The younger sister
Buyankhishig was always around watching her older sibling, never
realizing that she herself had an interest in the art of contortion. Until
one day Erdenesuvd watched her little sister secretly practicing contortion
at home doing the most difficult moves. On that very day the new show act
THE GANBAATAR SISTERS was born.
Tiffany Knoblach is a multi-talented circus artist
trained in classical contortion, hand-balancing, dance,

intensive ballet and gymnastics.
After discovering her passion for contortion, Tiffany
pursued and gained entrance to the prestigious Ecole Nationale de Cirque
in Montreal where she trained as a DEC student under the tutelage of
Daniela Arendasova, a renowned Russian gymnastics coach.
During her career, Tiffany has made appearances in
artistic events including the SPCA Charity Gala in 2011 and numerous
nightclubs. Her distinguishing features include extraordinary flexibility,
distinctive choreography, and precision in strength and balance.

this experience and her interest in Yoga and contortion, Tara
