Laika Fox is a Denver-based burlesque performance artist, originally from Oakland, CA. Drawing on her background in jazz dance, musical theater, and activism, she uses burlesque as a medium for creating acts that are clever, insightful, and often subversive. She performs all over Denver and the Bay Area, and also nationally and internationally at various festivals and shows. She received the title of ‘Most Classic’ at ABurlyQ 2017 dressed as a giant piece of meat.

Laika is a co-director of The Body Political. The Body Political is an organization that confronts social myths about the body through personal stories of resistance and reclamation. Programs of BP include: a bi-annual subversive burlesque and variety show, workshops on how to create political performances about your experiences in your body, and sponsoring and promoting other subversive burlesque and variety shows.

She is also on the production team for the Burlesque Hall of Fame, a nonprofit museum with a mission to preserve, celebrate, and inspire the art of burlesque.
