My specialty is performing opulent classic burlesque showgirl style striptease numbers that are often slightly interactive with the crowd. I have beautiful feather or silk fan dances, flirtatious classic gown and boa acts... luxurious negliges, tight corsets, bustles, sparkle and the wits to match!
Optional services include:
I'm available to sing and can bring accompaniment for an extra fee.
I can also bring a cigarette girl to carry your gift or sample items in a tray to hand out, or we can come complete with cute burlesque items like postcards, jeweled flowers, and pasties, also for an extra fee.
I had the honor to hire Amber and she was a pro, top of the game. She brings amazing costumes and is very elegant and kind with everyone. To be recommended 100%!!

What to Expect
I will arrive with an assistant who will handle all of my music, costume details and liasion with people in charge while I get ready. I will need a safe secure place to get ready and change as well as a sound system that can play my track.
I can come out and start the performance cold or someone can announce me, (my assistant has enough theatrical skill to announce me) and anything else you may need. I could also come out and tease the crowd while announcing myself and relay any message you may want me to share.
I will come out and perform.
Sometimes during the number, if desired, there is light audience participation while I have them help me remove a glove, or unzip a zipper, or hold my boa. I have a way of disarming the crowd with some positive interaction. There will be flirting and a light amount of teasing along with fan dancing or luxurious, complicated striptease. My assistant will collect my costume pieces. we will swiftly and quickly make our exit!
If musical accompaniment is hired, we will need to arrange space, for them and their needs, as well.
Cigarette girl is available with tray to hand out your party favors, desserts or corperate samples of any kind, or if you would like burlesque souvenir items (like pasties, postcards and hair flowers). They can be available for purchase.
