Gig Length: 15 - 90 minutes
What to Expect
Standard burlesque acts are typically 5-7 minutes in length and require at least 10-15 minutes in between for costume changes. I also have specialty acts; fire, fetish, 6ft balloon. Most of my acts are comedic/tongue-in-cheek or slow and sexy and strictly for adults. However, I do have family-friendly-ish 6ft balloon acts.
Fire performances are limited to small torches and fans. I am a fire eater, but I do not spit/blow fire balls. Please note my fire safety person travels with me to all fire bookings.

Additional Booking Notes
Private dressing room space is required.
6ft balloon acts require a 12ft minimum ceiling height, a large, clean, and debris-free performance area, and a prop staging area large enough to prepare and inflate the balloon.
Fire acts require a clean, well-ventilated performance area. Outside is best, but I will not perform fire in windy conditions. My fire safety person travels with me to all fire bookings.
