Cirque du Soleil returns to Queensland with a brand new show
UNLIKE many dancers who take their first steps on stage at a young age, Kazuha Ikeda was a late bloomer.
Kaz, as she is more commonly known, took up dancing when she was 17 years old in her home town of Tokyo.
Her talent quickly shone through, and before long Kaz was on a plane to Los Angeles where she went to study dance.
Her career took off quickly, with Kaz appearing as a dancer in live performances and music videos for multiple recording artists, including the Pussy Cat Dolls, Mariah Carey and Britney Spears.
But it is her latest role which has her saying "it's a dream come true".
After auditioning multiple times for Cirque du Soleil, Kaz achieved her dream of being offered a role in the production's newest show, KURIOS - Cabinet of Curiosities, landing the role of Klara.
