When I heard the call of burlesque in 2008, I never dreamed of the places it would take me!

From sharing my story at weekly Chicago cabaret shows to touring internationally and performing at the Burlesque Hall of Fame, I’ve experienced my fair share of dream gigs come true.

But, what really drew me to burlesque all those years ago is what keeps me coming back now. When we gather to celebrate beauty, joy, and liberation in the company of other bad-ass women and femmes.

As a teacher, many of the students I work with have never stepped foot in a dance studio, let alone onstage! Yet, they have heard the call of burlesque, and their heart answered.

Through my art, we explore burlesque as a sacred invitation to each artist to attune to their inner knowing and activate their own unique, undeniable confidence

Each artist’s story is different.

I’ve performed in thousands of burlesque shows worldwide, including every major burlesque event in London, Paris, New York, Vegas, Munich, Glasgow, and more. I have served as fairy godmother to countless illustrious local and worldwide burlesque stars, so I know what it takes to be seen and celebrated for your uniqueness.

I would love to share what I’ve learned about the art of burlesque with you!
