Lara Helena

Lara grew up between three continents with an Australian Mother and Slovenian Father. Both of her parents had a love for the arts, performance, healing and travel which they instilled in Lara, who has gained extensive experience and knowledge in these areas. Lara’s performance training began with a love of dance at a young age. At 14, she was accepted into The Nevada Ballet of Arts where she received formal dance training in various forms of jazz, ballet, modern and funk. At 18, she went to UNLV as a Dance Major and after two years transferred to the Theater Department to study acting. Soon after, she landed her first role in a Las Vegas show — singing and dancing at the Las Vegas Hilton’s “Kristine & The Sting Show”. After performing in numerous shows in Las Vegas in her early 20s, Siegfried & Roy, EFX, Splash, Lara was offered an opportunity to perform in a musical theater production of Grease in Europe. For the next six years, from her home base in Germany, Lara successfully freelanced as a dancer, singer, actress, choreographer and producer for pop groups, television shows, fashion events, theater productions, industrial shows and conventions. The 9/11 tragedy pushed her to step away from the performing arts for a while and delve deeper into acting and the healing arts. Lara moved to London where holistic health, massage, yoga and meditation soon took on a larger role in her life while she pursued vigorous performance training as an actor. She studied at The Actors Center and City Lit College while performing in West End and UK stage shows. London was her home for 3 years. In 2008, Lara returned to the United States. She spent two years in Las Vegas working in yoga and dance and with a non-profit for woman in Africa before her acting career drew her to Los Angeles. Lara loves living in LA and is focused on acting for film and television while she remains an artist and a healer.
