“I wanted to surprise my husband for his 40th birthday party and I was thrilled when Nyla said she was available. All of my communication with Nyla was professional and thoughtful. She asked if there was a particular song for the birthday boy to get up and dance to. He was thrilled. It was a fantastic and memorable evening, made all the more special by Nyla. She wowed us with her amazing talent and her breathtaking sword dance. I wouldn’t hesitate in the least to recommend her.”

Favorite Moment: “I loved it all. I loved how everything she did was a great surprise for the audience. Nyla blew people away with her sword dance. Very impressive!”

– Jean L. San Francisco, CA
