Showgirl Style

Thank you for a fantastic birthday week and for coming out to my birthday show at Untitled. I LOVE jumping out of cakes!

Now, there are lots of fun things going on this week, not to mention my fresh excitement about dancing! I went to a ballet class for the first time in years last night and I’m just buzzing about it. But, more on that some other time.

First, my new TeaseTip is up at BurlyQ.com. It’s all about what is takes to follow your dreams and how important the ‘hustle’ is when you’re in the arts. I’m really enjoying writing these expanded Tease Tips, so I hope you will check it out.

Second, on April 23, Studio L’amour is having another Studio L’amour Teaser! This is a showcase of students, teachers and performers from the Chicago cabaret scene. It’s a very informal gathering to encourage the growth and development of acts in our city. I’ll be hosting, and that is always a fun time! Hope to see you there!

Finally, the new session is now available for Studio L’amour. Classes begin again on May 1st. I’ll be teaching a new class called ‘Showgirl’. It’s going to be an hour of parading, posing and prancing! Make sure to register for this and other classes here.

A Night of Noir

It’s my birthday week! Of course, I’m celebrating in my birthday suit and you’re invited!

On April 14th, Naked Girls Reading takes on Noir at a new venue, Vol. 39 at 39 S LaSalle.

New York author, Bradley Spinelli, makes a book tour stop in Chicago to visit us for a night of noir with his new Thriller, “The Painted Gun”.

We’ll also be reading from Chicago author Joe Meno and New York’s Rob Hart. Take a walk on the seedy side with us for this very special event with Cocktails by Lauren Parton (so good)!

All authors will be available after the event for a book signing.

Le Nu Recap

First, allow me to thank you all for your support on Le Nu! It was a spectacular show! My goal this year is to bring it to at least one other city. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

As you can tell, I was a very busy lady that evening. I loved every minute of it. This show is so special tome and I hope that you are able to join me someday. It truly is a delicious experience!

Second, I want to give you a preview of what’s happening on my Patreon page. If you haven’t heard, this is my fan club where I can post all the things I can’t post on social media. It’s a great place for me to experiment and share exciting new things with you that I can’t share anywhere else. Please enjoy this small clip from a video I made wearing Coco de Mer panties. Mmmm, they are so exquisite! Join the fan club now!
