I started in burlesque because I saw some burlesque groups performing at events and it looked like a lot of fun. My husband encouraged me and I found local burlesque classes and signed up.
How long have you been performing?
I started performing burlesque in 2008. I have been doing other types of performing - dancing primarily, but also singing and acting, since I was a child.
What does burlesque mean to you ?
Burlesque means the opportunity to be creative and become a new character on stage. Burlesque is amazing because the neo-Burlesque community provides performers with the freedom to be creative and push boundaries, to be self-expressive, and to empower oneself and the audience through their work.
I have never been to Ohio and this seemed like a great opportunity to get my first taste of the area and get an opportunity to meet new performers and expand my horizons.
Describe your self in one word? Eclectic.
