When I was in college, I produced/directed/starred in a live Rocky Horror Picture Show cast. We had a thirty minute pre-show cabaret before every show, and I started doing burlesque as a way to spice it up. I was terrible back then, but it was so exciting!
How long have you been performing?
My first ever burlesque performance was in 2006, but I didn't really pursue it beyond the Rocky Horror show until 2009.
What does burlesque mean to you ?
Burlesque for me is about art, expression, and sexual liberty. It's the creative outlet I've always craved! It is inherently sensual and oftentimes erotic, and I love to take that tension and twist it into something strange and unusual... or sometimes, the other way around!
Because I've never performed there before! Hopefully this won't be the last time, either.
