:: Biography de Alvin Yong ::
Alvin Yong, a Malaysian performer specialising in Diabolo and Cyr Wheel, currently attending a circus school in Portugal. Growing up in Malaysia, a country where street performance and circus culture is far from the usual, he is always looking for places and opportunities to feed his passion. He picked up Diabolo as a hobby in 2002 and started to perform on the street with it in 2015. Two years later the Cyr Wheel came into his life, which expanded his horizon towards the circus world. In 2020, he decided to attend a circus school to master his passion, even though he is self taught and never had a professional background. Now he is still evolving together with these two best mates in life. You may read more information about me in my website:
