She worked throughout the United States in all burlesque theaters and nightclubs and internationally in South America, Middle East, Europe and Canada. In 1979, Marinka worked in Bob Fosse's "All That Jazz". Marinka moved to Las Vegas in 2004, and has been a member of the Burlesque Hall of Fame since its inception.
