so tell me about this Europe trip. I am so excited for you! Doing a huge Europe back packing trip is on my list of things to do while your still in your twenties. Also what have you been up to since I left? any thing fun?
Thanks, Danni! I’m really stoked about it. We’re going to London, Berlin, and Paris. I hope it goes as well as I think it will. And girl, please. I’m always having fun. Haha
How are burlesque dancers paid? Is there a set price that each performer has? Or is it more based on the size of the crowd?
Every show is run differently. Some shows are based on attendance and the performers split a portion of the door. Other times, performers are given a guarantee/set amount of payment. It depends on the producer, the booker, and the venue.
I honestly kind of fell into it. I used to have a friend that was a burlesque performer in NY. When we went to Texas together, she showed me a few tricks of trade, and she got me to perform with her a few times. I was pretty nervous, but we had a lot of fun. When I got back NC, another friend of mine asked if I wanted to audition to be in a burlesque show. I made it on, and everything kind of just built up from there.
Absolutely. The immortal blood of Gods is only on special occasions. Like my unbirthday. I dab my face dry with the skins of baby seals, while my body soaks up remaining residue of beings that could never surpass my greatness.
Your body looks like you just walked out of the garden of eden... Are you a product of dieting?? yoga??? what do you do to keep such a toned, feminine physique??
That’s quite the compliment! Thank you so much! I actually don’t have much of a diet or workout regimen. If you ask anyone that knows me, they’ll tell you I eat a lot. I don’t think eating a lot is necessarily bad though. It’s important to keep your body nourished. I try to not over eat. I’m more of a snacker, if anything. I eat a lot fruit, yogurt, cereal, and drink an obscene amount of water. That doesn’t include my fulfillment of all the basic food groups, on the daily. As far as working out, I just try to stay active. I wish I did yoga! I’ve actually been really interested in trying it out.
