Laura Neyskens started her career at the early age of 11 in the theatre production Bernadetje by choreographer Alain Platel and author–director Arne Sierens. Soon she discovered that dance was her primary impetus. So she continued her journey in the contemporary dance production Iets op Bach of Alain Platel (Les Ballets C. de la B.) where she met Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. Later, she joined Cherkaoui in his successful first production Rien de Rien. In the meantime she performed in the play Allemaal Indiaan by Arne Sierens and Alain Platel. In 2003 she took a break from high school to participate in a new production of Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui: Foi. After the long international tour of Foi, she returned to finish her last 2 years of schooling.
Since then she’s been specializing more in ethnic dance forms like oriental dance, Indian gypsy dance, flamenco and more hybrid varieties like Bollywood. She is also one of the founding members of La Guardia Flamenca, a street theatre company with a strong penchant for humour, that tours every summer. She trained in kathak in Mumbai in the winter of 2007, when the opportunity arose to rejoin Cherkaoui in Myth. After touring extensively with Myth, Laura Neyskens assisted Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui on the choreography of Olympique Dramatique's musical Adam’s Appels, in which she also featured as a dancer. In May 2010, she danced at La Scala in Wagner's epic Das Rheingold, directed by Guy Cassiers, conducted by Daniel Barenboim and choreographed by Cherkaoui. Meanwhile, she continues to dance with Gori Ka Dance Orchestra, which inventively reworks the Bollywood style of choreography.
