Torchlight Circus

Jeska has extensive back round in dance, and competitive cheerleading, which led her to her love of bellydance when she turned 18. Through her new found love of bellydance she started performing first with Mystic Jewel in 2006, and then again with Ghazaal Beledi from 2010-2012 at the Arizona Renaissance Festival, and various restaurants. From 2006-2010 she spent her time gogo dancing in various valley nightclubs, and doing promotional events. She has also been a licensed cosmetologist since 2003, and continues to work in two salons. It was her time spent bellydancing that slowly lit her love for fire dancing, it started with simple palm flames, then fire eating, turned to fire breathing, turned to fire spinning. The journey didn’t slow down there. One aerial arts class in 2013 led to years of training, that led to aerial arts being a part of her professional portfolio. Since 2006 she has performed in countless nightclubs, music venues, festivals, music videos, private parties, and corporate events. Her love for circus arts grows with each opportunity, and she is overwhelmed with gratitude being able to perform alongside the best performers the valley has to offer.
