Tashara and the sleeke chix did the evening entertainment at my wedding and they were fabulous! The dance floor was packed from start to finish and they really looked the part too and even had a few costume changes! Tashara worked with us to work out a set that we’d really like and every song was choreographed as well so it was really professional. I’d absolutely recommend booking them for your event, you will have a BLAST! ❤️🙌🏽✨👌🏽
