Laska has been dancing professionally for over eight years at 50+ events in Connecticut, New York, Virginia, Georgia, and North Carolina. She trained as a cabaret dancer in New York and in Boston. She also spent three years studying Afro-Caribbean dance, and tried her hand at Jazz, Modern, Flamenco, Salsa, and Isadora Duncan dance. She danced with Lynchburg Tribal for five years (American Tribal Style Belly Dance), but now dances solo.
Additional Booking Notes
A sound system that connects to a Smartphone should be provided, preferably in the same room in which the performance is to take place. The sound system is an important part of the show and should be tested prior to Laska's arrival. Louder is usually better. Laska has a speaker that can be used as the main speaker if you don't have one or as a backup.
Please provide a safe place to change, as many costumes can be damaged if worn while driving.
