Jacqueline Hyde has been my friend and burlesque mentor for over a year now, and she has completely change my world. I had never been to a burlesque show before seeing her one-women show, Illuminous, last year. So inspiring!! I could not wait to join this wonderful community, and she soon thereafter opened that door. I have grown so much under her supervision and mentorship, and it has been such an honor to be able to know this woman both on and off the stage.
