What got you started in burlesque?
I had been a swing dancer for about 12 years and was really bored. So one day a good friend of mine wanted to start a Burlesque Troupe. She would see us dance at a local club. So one night she approached me and asked if I wanted to join. I thought about it for 1 second and answered "Well why not?" So not having a clue what I was in for, a month later we had our first show and the rest is history.
How long have you been performing?
Burlesque, a little more than a year and a half. I feel like I have been doing this forever. I love it!
What does burlesque mean to you?
I am still struggling with that one. Burlesque is art. A raw look into sexuality. A forum for ideals, thoughts and dreams. It can be rough and soft, glamorous, ugly, seductive and repulsive. All rolled in to an ever expanding ball. It should embrace it's past while welcoming it's future.
It may take me a long while and the anticipation may kill me. But I want to experience every burlesque community in the United States and maybe beyond. So far the friendly faces and amazing women oh and men, (I have already met some awesome boylesk), push me to meet even more talented and sexy performers. So Ohio show me what you got. Entertain me and I will entertain you.
