After 21 years on the harsh Siberian steppe, Katya crossed the Bering strait and arrived in America on her beloved pet bear, 'Medved' in 2005 in nothing but a sparkly pair of pasties. Since then, she has been wowing audiences across the continent. When asked about the presumably arduous journey, Katya only remarked, “Is not so bad. I bring folding fan for warm Alaskan winter.”
Along with her burlesque experience, Katya has been belly dancing for 13 years and has several years of jazz dance experience as well. She has also dabbled in lyrical, Irish set dance, salsa, swing, and more!
Katya is also a certified yoga teacher and personal trainer.
