Biography

Laura began her dance training from the age of three. She started with ballet, then went on to learn tap, modern, jazz, contemporary and lyrical. Whilst training she took part in many competitions and shows, then in 2010 graduated from Winchester University with a degree in Choreography and Dance and Performing Arts.  

It was a couple of years later when she discovered the hoop, and soon became captivated by the wonderful world of flow arts, incorporating all of her dance training into these new skills. 

 

Fire hoop, fire dancing, body burning and fire eating soon became second nature and she realised that flow arts and fire performing was something she would like to pursue.

Soon Laura started working in the kids area at festivals, teaching circus skills during the day and putting on fire shows at night. She then went on to perform to much bigger audiences, the biggest being the main stage in Shangri-La at Glastonbury festival, hoop dancing for the Dub Pistols set. 

 

In 2015 she went to Romania with a charity called The Flying Seagull Project. They went to various orphanages and schools, putting on shows and running workshops in music, circus and dance. In 2016 she went to Cambodia where she performed and led workshops at Freeflow Fire and Arts Festival, then onto Thailand where she performed at Shambhala In Your Heart Festival. 

Performing at many different events such as club nights, burlesque nights and birthday parties, Laura creates exciting performances with fire, LED, hoop dance and stilt walking, gripping the audience from start to finish.
