From the opening communication to the day of the show, Leela Mae, has been wonderful to work with. She was quick to respond to my inquiries. She adjusted to requests from the venue. She came with costume, music and choreography ready to go. Onstage, she was engaging and charismatic! The audience loved her!
Would DEFINITELY work with her again. So, should you! Give this talented young lady work!
Response from Leela Mae:
It was an absolute pleasure working with you on this event ! Please feel free to reach out for any other performance related opportunities that you may be organizing in the future. I would love to work with you again, Thank you so much!

Before we booked Leela and up until the time of the event, Leela was great at communicating with us. The day of the event she showed up with plenty of time to talk through what the game plan for the evening. The kids were all in awe of her LED hoops.
Response from Leela Mae:
Thank you for the great event! It was a lot of fun to entertain such a great group of people. It was also very cool to see and hear just how much funding LLS was able to raise at this Light the Night fundraiser event. Hope to work with the LLS organization more in the future.

Leela Mae was amazing!! She is extremely talented, graceful and very professional at what she does. I will definitely book her again for my next party!
Leela came to the campus of our rural community college to do fire performances for our bi-annual campus celebration. Leela was great to work with--quick and responsive communications, simple paperwork, and specific with her set-up requests--making my job much easier! The students loved the performances and thought Leela was great! She is extremely talented, friendly, and was happy to interact with the students. I would absolutely recommend her and hope to work with her again in the future.
I asked leela to come perform at an event we were hosting at Fresh Thyme in Crystal Lake and she was very enthusiastic right off the bat. She was ready to accommodate her routine, music and costume to fit the event. On the day of the event, she showed up 10-15 minutes before her scheduled time to ensure she had every thing set up for a prompt start time. She performed for an hour and completely captivated the attendees with her skill, energy and passion. It was a pleasure having her at our event and we would most definitely recommend her services to others
We booked Leela for an experimental festival called "Cabaret Church" and she was great. Easy to work with, personable, and talented, she went above and beyond the call of duty. She was professional and friendly and her hoop work was a big hit!
Leela did a great job!! We invited her to do a performance at our Bunny Breakfast and she offered to also incorporate a hoop contest for the little kids. She did a great job entertaining everyone while we waited for our egg hunt to begin. Leela was very professional and connected really well with our group of community members. I thought that was important because we had a very diverse age range for the days event. We will definitely be asking Leela back for future events!!
