I’ll be bringing my glittery shimmy, shake, bump & grind to the twenties in Berlin and Hamburg!
First up! Bohème Sauvage at Bassy Club in Berlin on April 30! This will be a gorgeous night of celebrating the 20s with an underground mafia twist!
Then you can catch me on May 8 in Hamburg at Swing Légère the Mandalay Club!
Live music, dancing and… of course burlesque! See you there!!!!
Burlesque Finland posted an adorable, tongue-in-cheek review of my performances at the Helsinki Burlesque Festival!
Since the dawn of time girls have dreamed of getting their first bra, (well ok since it’s invention, and yeah there was that time when women were supposedly burning them, but lets not spoil a good thing here ok?) and the bubbly Champagne Sparkles invited us to join her on her quest to find her perfect first bra. This was the first of two performances from her, and it was cheeky charming entertainment all the way. For her second performance she teamed up with a great and extremely experienced Muppet, together they performed Mahna Mahna, and although Champagne Sparkles kept interrupting, the Muppet was able to give a wonderful performance that everybody (except for Statler and Waldorf, but lets face it, how often did they really enjoy anything) enjoyed.

Since teaching my classes How To Get That Gig! (And Be Asked Back) and Puttin’ On The Glitz! How To Produce A Show! at Burlycon 2012, ‘ve been getting lots of questions about these topics.
So… I’ve decided to start a blog to answer questions, create a dialogue and help our art form develop.
I’m presenting the ways I’ve developed for working and there are lots of successful methods out there, so I encourage experienced performers and producers to offer your insights as well!

What an AMAZING festival! Mr Black came on this trip and we had a marvellous time in snowy, wintery Finland! The Helsinki Burlesque Festival was fabulous - wonderful performers, lovely audience and the nicest people EVER hosting us all! Bettie Blackheart and Frank Doggenstein at Helsinki Burlesque really do it up RIGHT!

I recently got my limited edition copy of Berlin Burlesque by Paul Green am absolutely THRILLED to have been included in the book! Paul captured my performance at Pinky’s Peepshow in October, 2011.
The book is filled with AMAZING photographs of many Berlin-based and international performers! WOW! Looking through the photographs truly gives you the feeling of scene here!
This is the photo of me from the book:
