I am still in the aftermath of the YouTube banning. Trying to figure out how to make the best of a bad situation. I have some new show ideas because of it (and hopefully I’ll have news on that soon) and I also decided to finally start ‘The SpiritualiTEASE‘ on Instagram. This has been something that I’ve had rolling around in the back of my mind for years, but I’ve finally decided to do it. The idea is simple. I share life lessons that I’ve learned throughout my career as a burlesque star. Art has shaped me and how I see the world. I share personal stories and offer up advice for anyone looking to get to their next spiritual step. I come to you as a peer, not as an expert. We’re in this together! So, follow @thespiritualitease on Insta and let’s grow together.
I’ve also been giving a lot of attention to my fan club. I’ve recorded 4 scary tales that I read to you in nothing but goosebumps. Tis the season! And if you join my fan club at any point before Oct 30th, you will receive an exclusive spooky video download. Join now!
And, I’ve got 2 workshops coming up at Fit & Bendy Studios:
Oct 13 – SensualiTEASE – 12:30-1:45 – Register
This class is designed to reconnect you with your body and tune into your senses. It was such a high last month, and I wanted to do it again. This time, I’m serving up fruit and chocolate to tap into those taste buds!
Oct 27 – Thriller – 12:30-1:45 – Register
It’s tradition! Learn the classic Thriller Choreography with a burlesque twist. Such a good thing to do to get you into the Halloween Spirit!
And finally, I’m working on a brand new act to premiere at Lucha Va Voom on Oct 23 and 24 at the Mayan Theater! Crunch time!
Busy, busy, busy…
On September 22, I’ll be teaching my new class, SensualiTEASE at Fit & Bendy Studios 12:30-1:45.
Are you feeling like you are all business and no play? Just grinding out day to day and not taking time to relish in those special moments? In SensualiTEASE, I will focus on reconnecting you with your body with slow and sensual movements. We will begin with a luxurious stretch designed to warm up your body and open those sticky spots. Then, we will learn a combination that will bring you fully into your body so that you can take your new self into the world with confidence. This class is for everyone. No experience is necessary. Just bring an open mind and heart. REGISTER
I will be teaching my Leg Show workshop on July 21st at Fit and Bendy Studios, 12:30-2pm.
Removal of thigh highs and garter belts can be challenging! There’s balance, flexibility and you also don’t want to put a run in your stockings! We will discuss different techniques of removal for every level of ability and also learn choreography to implement the skills. For this class, please bring a pump (a heel with no straps), a pair of thigh highs you don’t mind rehearsing with (leave the expensive ones at home) and a garter belt (optional). It may also be best to wear shorts, so you can easily access your stockings. Register NOW!
Ok people. There is a lot going on so try to keep up with this one! I’m headed to Chicago for a few days and would love to see you there, but don’t worry LA! I’ve got things planned for you too!
