I’m currently half way through my European tour and I just found out that I was named one of ‘The Most Influential Burlesque Figures of the Decade’ by 21st Century Burlesque Magazine. I am so honored by this. It’s nice to be acknowledged for my work in this field. It was a really nice surprise today!
Right now, I am in Rome for some play time and then I will head to Bordeaux to teach and perform, then on to Paris for more play time, and my final stop will be Vienna for some shows. Then, I’m off to Vegas to perform at the Orleans in the Burlesque Hall of Fame weekender on June 3rd. Talk about culture shock! Vienna to Vegas! But, there is no rest for the wicked. I will be back in Chicago on June 7th. Here’s where you can find me:
June 7th – Untitled at 9pm
June 8th – Naked Girls Reading: Lunatics – Readings all about the love of the moon at Skylark Chess Society – 8pm
June 9th – Untitled at 9 and 10pm and Big Sexy Show at 11pm at the Comedy Bar
June 10th – Burlesque Workshop at Dovetail Studios – Boa Love at 2:15pm
Hope to see you in Chicago!
My next workshop will be in Los Angeles on May 1st! Check out the details below:
May 1 – 6:30- 8pm
Evolution Dance Studios
10816 Burbank Blvd
North Hollywood, CA 91601
When you think burlesque, you think feathers. Moving beyond the boa, we have feather fans! Made famous by Sally Rand, fan dancing is now an integral part of burlesque. Every dancer should know their way around a pair of fans! In this class, you will learn how to use the fans as an extension of yourself and how to move effortlessly while yielding these beautiful beasts. No experience necessary! REGISTER
You can bring your own fans, or you can rent a pair. If you chose to rent a pair, please click here. This includes the price of the class with the fan rental.
See you in LA!
It’s my birthday month! The actual date is April 15th (yes, that’s a reminder to get your taxes done) but I will be celebrating on April 12th at Unbridled at Untitled. There’s no better way to celebrate my birthday than to have a show full of half naked people performing for me. Really, it’s a dream come true! The show is at 9pm and I plan on doing some things with cake…
Then, on April 14th, I’ll be teaching another workshop in Chicago. See the details below:
Chicago – April 14 – The Tease – 3:45-5pm – $25 – Register
2853 W Montrose Ave
Chicago, IL 60618
In ‘The Tease’, you will learn a full choreography that involves props. For this first Tease workshop, we’ll be working with a robe, garter band and bra. There will be no nudity in class, so you can wear all of these props over your clothing. It is recommended that you bring your own props. Heels are also recommended but optional. Register
And later, on April 14th, I’ll be at Big Sexy Show. The show starts at 11pm at the Comedy Bar and will end a little after midnight, so at that time, I’ll be officially turning 21! Tequila please! Tix
Hope to see you in April in the Windy City!
On March 23rd in Chicago, we’ll be celebrating Naked Girls Reading 9th Anniversary! I remember starting this event 9 years ago and not really sure if I could get readers and if I could get an audience. It turned out, that readers were eager to participate and the audience couldn’t get enough! This event is magic every time. I learn something new. I get excited about reading a particular author or book and the audience feels the same. The connection between us is real and beautiful and I’m so happy to have this event in my life. Please join myself, Greta Layne and Dominique Trixx for our anniversary. The reading selections will be reader’s choice so you are in for a wide variety of genres! We’ll also be doing this at a new location: The Skylark Chess Society at 4201 N Ravenswood. This is a very sexy space and it’s still BYOB. Make your reservations now!
Then, on March 24th in Chicago, I’ll be teaching a new workshop called Sexy Striptease at Dovetail Studios, 2853 W Montrose, 3:30-5pm.
In Sexy Striptease, we’ll be working on burlesque technique in the first half of class and then you’ll learn a luscious dance that combines classic burlesque moves with the more modern striptease moves of today. This will be a really wonderful blend of styles and after this class, you’ll be so excited to show others what you’ve learned!
No props necessary. Heels are optional. Come prepared to move! Register
Hope to see you at a reading and/or a workshop!
