Please bring lawn chairs and blankets with you to watch in case the grass is wet. The dunk tank, inflatable battle ax throwing and art projects have been canceled.

Internationally renowned and motivationally captivating, Martika and her one woman show hail from Kansas City, MO. Raised in a military family, Martika grew comfortable constantly moving about the globe from a young age. This exposure to international performers sparked her interest in the circus arts, and at the age of 8 she ignited her passion for the performing arts through training in jazz dance and classical ballet. Her passion for dance flourished when she discovered hula hooping. Constantly looking to push herself, in 2008 Martika sought out the best teachers to further her knowledge in fire arts,  escapology, and sideshow stunts. Since then she has been featured on numerous news outlets such as Lawrence Business Magazine, KCUR, FOX4 KC, and the top international wellness corporation, Wanderlust.
