Sóley is the daughter of Ólafur and sister of Snædís. When she’s not working at the volcano she’s studying at the Reykjavik Junior College and she’s simultaneously at the JSB dance school! On top of being an amazing dancer, she’s so good at contortions that it makes the rest of us feel like we’re made out of bricks. When we asked her for fun facts she informed us that she is quite good at bum skipping. She’s no Peter Nestler but she is still quite good!
