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…
Halloween month is in full swing! Here’s where you can find me next:
Oct 28 – Thriller Burlesque Workshop at Fit & Bendy in LA – 12:15-1:30 – Register

Oct 29 – Naked Ghouls Reading – 4201 N Ravenswood in Chicago – 8pm – Tickets

Oct 31 – Ghouls, Ghouls, Ghouls at Untitled in Chicago – 9pm – Tickets
Imagine a club where those that scare go to PARTY! Think strip clubs on Sunset Strip. Think Fangtasia in True Blood. Think about not thinking too much and just come and have fun! We’ll have a fantastic show on stage and we’re featuring Nosferotika and the ChamPAIN room! This is THE place to be on Halloween! Costumes encouraged
October is kind of like burlesque Christmas. So many shows and opportunities for ghoulish adventures! Here’s what I have coming up this month (at least the ones I can tell you about):
October 17th – Pretty Funny at Three Clubs in Hollywood
This show features great stand up comedy and burlesque. Our comics this month are Selene Luna, Jaylin Eaves, and Jared Logan and our burlesque features myself, Olive Ozentatious and Tito Bonito. All hosted by the delightful Natasha Estrada! Get your tix here.
Then, on October 24th, immerse yourself in beats, sex, and fashion. I’m starting a new club dance event called XS:NDK (Excess in decay). We’ll have a DJ, go go dancers, grinders, pole dancers, and a shot of burlesque! Come dance with me 10pm – 2am at El Cid on Sunset. Tix here.
On October 28, I’ll be teaching my Thriller burlesque workshop at Fit and Bendy studios in LA. We’ll learn the classic Thriller choreography but burlesque style! Bring a loose fitting shirting or a shirt that you don’t mind ripping. Register here.
Then, I’m off to Chicago to round out this Halloween season at Untitled Supper Club.
On October 31st, we’ll be doing Halloween proper with Ghouls, Ghouls, Ghouls: Take an undead trip down the sunset strip. What if all your favorite Halloween ghouls met at a club house and you got to go? Think Fangtasia from True Blood. A monster hot spot! Our mission is not to scare, but to entice, to tantalize, to entertain. We’ll be doing a full club take over and will feature over 30 performers. This is an event not to be missed! If you miss it, you’ll certainly be saying ‘boo’. Get your tix now!
Chicago, I hope you’re ready for all this spookiness coming up this weekend! Well, let me rephrase, I hope I’m ready! Ready or not, here I come!
Oct 26 – INFERNO at Untitled – Doors at 9pm – Tix Celebrate sin with me on Oct 26th at Untitled. We’ll be heavily featuring LUST while also taking you through Eden and getting you up close and personal with our dapper Devil! Tickets
