Client reviews

Here’s what Martika’s previous clients have to say:

I didn’t think you could do all the tricks you brought, and even though we only picked two, the ones you did you rocked. People couldn’t believe it was real. I assumed there was some gag. WE WERE ALL WRONG. Just do it. Once you see her you’ll want to hire her every time.

– Josh G: Sideshow Stunts for Planter’s Worldwide Video Shoot

We heard positive feedback about Martika’s performance from attendees. She met our expectations. We would definitely book Martika again. She was accountable, professional, fun, interactive, friendly, and adaptive to the event with regards to her acts, physical location and attire. Her variety of acts allows her to fit very well into a variety of events and needs.

Lauren Grashoff- Event Planner- City of Shawnee Mayor’s Tree Lighting Ceremony 2017

Martika is extremely friendly and enthusiastic in her approach to work. My experience communicating with her leading up to the event is always extremely pleasant. She is detailed oriented, flexible and prompt in her responses. A true professional!

Martika is a very creative and unique teacher who brings a passion to teaching hooping that influences all of her students for the better. It is fun, upbeat, exciting and accessible to all levels!

Martika has excelled as a Wanderlust presenter – working with the top international yoga festival in the world – so there is no need to be uncertain. She has traveled all over the country, teaching people of all levels, under varying conditions, and maintains a sense of professionalism, grace and enthusiasm – always.

We have booked Martika for our Fall 108 tour!

Elle Bourgeois- Programming and Operations Manager of Wanderlust 2017 Spring/Summer/Fall National Tour

Martika was extremely communicative and approachable. She responded quickly to emails and was able to give any information i needed. Her show was exactly what we were looking for in a sideshow performer. Her costume and look was great and professional for the act. She is professional and punctual, and can perform a diversity of side show acts which can be difficult to find.

Hannah H: Entertainment Director – The Devil’s Carnival Film Release Party 2015

Her performance was beautiful, very visually appealing, and smooth as silk. The videos I watched of her before booking her simply didn’t do her justice (but then again, videos never show live theatre well).The feedback was very positive. I also heard several cast members comment on your good vibes backstage, not just ON stage.I would recommend her to anyone running a show like mine. Or any kind of live event,actually, as her work appeals to a wide range of ages and types. Beautiful in any setting!

– Naughty Pierre: Co-Owner of Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret 2015

We saw your performance at the Missouri Fairs and Festival Convention in Columbia earlier in the year. We got a chance to talk with you one-on-one later in the day, and your personality and smile “closed the deal.” Actually booking your performance was quite easy through the email address you provided to us. 

You exceeded our expectations. You were able to work through the heat and light rain. And you stayed friendly and approachable to all of the children watching your performance, and the ones that followed you around later when you were making the giant bubbles. 

My greatest concern was that someone would say that it was too scary or too extreme for Old Shawnee Days….but no one posted or made these comments to us. I attended several of your performances to watch the crowd, and they were anxious and curious and nervous…which I think is the expected response!

You were very kind to listen to our concerns and tailor your acts to better fit the Old Shawnee Days crowds. Also, I would tell them that you have a beautiful personality that matches your beautiful smile, and you are the type of performer that we want in our festival. We plan to book her for 2018!

Staci Holcom- Event Director- Old Shawnee Days 2017

The booking was easy. Martika was prompt on getting back to me with any info. Or questions. Enjoyed talking with her. Kept in touch till our scheduled event. Martika did a great job! Teens and parents were all talking about it the next day. First time having entertainment at prom it worked out great kept the kids there.

I felt like I wanted to see more of the LED light up hula hoop show. Everyone thought it was great idea! We did not hear one negative word. I think they were amazed we had real entertainers come to our little school!

 If you are thinking about hiring Martika you should it only made our event that much better!! Would for sure hire them again for a future event.
