Karolina Lux, originally from the Bay Area, has spent the past 2 years in Portland, making herself a name as one of the most desired belly dance/burlesque fusion artists, pushing the limits of both fields with her exciting fusion, including BellyBrass, her “belly dance trumpet-playing” fusion. She has taught at festivals from New York City to Portland, appears teaching and performing on a number of internationally distributed DVDs, teaches workshops and classes on “Belly-esque”, which both help belly dancers get more sassy, and burlesque artists get more shimmy-liscious, and appears in variety revues across the country. She is a member of Belly Dance Soulfire, and a performer for Sinn Savvy Burlesque in Portland, OR. She is also producer of a number of successful variety revues, and her current touring show, the MataHari Hustle, which will be featured in theaters across the west coast in June!
