“An enchantress to make you feel the earth move.”

Gaea lady is an enchantress by nature, and is a force that will make you feel the very earth move.  Fusing her 25 years of dance training in forms from classical to modern - neovintage to the ethereal, she cultures an intentional style that is all her own.  Integrating dance, art, visuals, costuming, concept, fire, silk fabrics, temple dance, hoops, and deep seated intention, her inspiring performances mesmerize and deeply touch. She seeks to share knowledge and empower others through her performances and teaching, forging connections and community.

Gaea is the winner of the Burlesque Hall of Fame’s “Best Debut” and “Most Classic” in 2016, and performed at the “Icons & Allstars” show in 2017.  She graces festival stages such as Show Me (St. Louis), Envision (Costa Rica), Electric Forest (Michigan), Symbiosis (California), Oregon Eclipse (Oregon), Burningman (Nevada), and Bhakti Fest (California). In her home base of Chicago, Gaea performs at Unbridled at Untitled, the Kiss Kiss Cabaret, the Naughty Little Cabaret, the Vertical Sideshow, the Drifter, Soho House, with Pyrotechniq Fire Troupe.  She also is a vegetarian chef, traveling to teach and nourish for movement and wellness retreats.
