BandComedySpoken Word

Basketball tricks with 3, 4, 5, and 6 balls. Ilze dribbles, juggles and spins basketballs on a balance board, and using other props to music and dance. Message on setting goals, working hard, never giving up and leading a balanced life.


Ilze Auzina-Luneau came to United States from Latvia, small country in Eastern Europe. Ilze was an All-American basketball player at the College of Saint Rose, 1993-1997, and graduated with a finance and international business degree in 1997.

Ilze received her MBA degree from SUNY, Albany in 2002. After finishing her degree and having three girls, Ilze is performing basketball shows full-time year round.

Ilze started seriously practicing basketball ballhandling tricks after graduating from college. She took after Matt, seeing the fun and enjoyment he was having with the ballhandling and entertainment shows. However, Ilze had a lot of previous basketball ballhandling experience, since back in Latvia she played on a team that performed basketball ballhandling clinics and entertainment shows since the age of nine.

Ilze performs the shows, does all the web page design, and all the marketing for the shows while taking care of her three beautifull little girls at home - so she knows a thing or two about "working hard", "balancing it all out" and "making your dreams come true". She hopes she can inspire you to never give up and go for your dreams inspite all the obstacles on the way. Please visit for more info and videos.


Have performed for NBA, WNBA and NCAA basketball games, business gatherings, many schools assemblies, Christian evangelistic events, basketball camps and charities. Full list of references on the web site
