Falling into ALL the glitter and glamour!

I haven’t written a blog in far too long, for the usual reasons, I suck at it. BUTT, I don’t suck at keeping myself occupied in many other aspects of my life. I had the pleasure of just finishing up a 5 show run for the Vancouver Fringe Festival with the magnificent collaborative efforts and brains of Pandora and the Locksmiths, Kitty Nights West and Burgundy Brixx‘s production of “Gypsy Rose Lee at Minsky’s Burlesque!” We couldn’t have asked for a better turn out in those classy old Cultch theatre seats! Thank you to every one who came and supported the “booby ballet and mammary manipulations,” it was such a treat! I will admit that I am learning to jump a bit more outside my comfy bubble and getting more confident with my abilities as a silly actress, and singer – errrr ok maybe not the singing part.

Speaking of Pandora and the Locksmiths, we just celebrated THREE years together as an amazing collective! I couldn’t be MORE proud to call myself a member. So many talented musicians, artists, dancers, and singers all together creating such mind blowing work every month for the last 37 shows! The room was filled with such love and support, especially seeing some other key members of the burlesque community whom I look up to and have supported and taught me from the very beginning. A special thanks to Guilt and Co for being an amazing and supportive venue, and Jody Bowen for her crazy hard work and beautifully sparkly vision.

I am also proud to announce that I was accepted into the 11th annual New York Burlesque Festival! While I am so proud to be a part of it, I am still a little in a state of shock, holding myself back from responding to the email with “ummm, are you sure you got the right girl?” as I awkwardly glance behind me looking for another sparkly goddess I could be mistaken for. But the first step to becoming stronger and better at what I do, is accepting that I am worth it. And that I shall do. HERE I COME NEW YORK!
