She was born in Tashkent (Uzbekistan), into an ethnic and artistic family. Her mother, a professional ethnic dancer, was a granddaughter of one of the greatest Uzbeki poets of all time - Hamza Hakimzoda Niyazi.
Laura’s attraction and passion for dance flourished over the years. Six years of ballet school in Uzbekistan evolved to practices of Russian and Uzbek folklore dancing under the supervision of well-known professionals. Under such experienced tutelage, LaUra was able to develop herself as dancer, artist as well as a dazzling entertainer.
At the age of 15, Laura met Loren Victoria Gray who introduced her to the enchanting world of belly dance, while being a guest teacher at the National Ballet School in Tashkent. Ms. Gray is a founder, choreographer and artistic director of the Silk Road Company.
