Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, Astrid trained and competed as an Irish dancer from the age of 11. In 2012, she was accepted into the Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance in London. Upon graduation, she joined Scottish Dance Theatre and throughout her time there Astrid had the privilege to perform works by choreographers Sharon Eyal, Damien Jalet, Anton Lachky, Botis Seva, Colette Sadler, and Fleur Darkin. She has since then engaged in various projects as a freelancer, having worked with Iván Pérez (ES), La Verita Dance Company (BE), and on several projects with Damien Jalet.

Aside from her career as a performer, Astrid is taking steps towards fulfilling her choreographic curiosity and is particularly interested in collaborating with artists of contrasting disciplines, providing new mediums and different entry points to her artistic inquiry. In 2020, Astrid collaborated with London-based poet and filmmaker Zara Joan Miller. And she created her first work Ontogensis Dreams alongside visual artist Weixin Chong, which has been selected for the inaugural Esplanade Performing Arts Residency.
