What burlesque means to me? Burlesque is a way to express all of myself. I don’t feel the need to hide any of myself away and quite frankly, I love to glory in my own fabulousness! I think it is a wonderfully open form of entertainment. For the most part, it is pure entertainment without agendas but works equally well if you want to attach a message to it. The most unconscious and obvious message is to love who you are and celebrate the body you have – and that counts for both sexes. The most interesting and engaging entertainment often comes from imperfection, improvisation and good old fashioned chutzpah!
