The weekend was great! Got to attend the show at Jim Thorpe Burlesque Fest on Friday night and watch all sorts of fun performers go up there and strut their stuff. On Saturday, I got to perform twice, alongside one of my favorite people in the world, Wham Bam Pam. (You know, in the last three festivals, we've been programed immediately before/after eachother...)

We had some really nice accomodations here in Jim Thorpe, and the audience was great and so into the burlesque! Wham Bam Pam even won first runner up for her mime act! <3

Overall, there's been a lot of chilling, drinking, socializing with new folks. I hadn't met almost any of the people who attended this fest, so there was a lot of introductions...as I suspect there will also be in Kansas City (next up...April 14-16).

I had a huge turn out for my "basic burlesque" class - and a bee in my bonnet - I heard it was the biggest turn out of all of the classes...which seems to be a nice running theme in all of the places I'm traveling these days. :) Extra bonus? I got to teach it on a roller rink (it was at some sort of Park District building) with black lights. Very bad ass.

I'm looking forward to getting home, mostly because I've got a LOT of work waiting there for me. In addition to working on a commercial gig on Tuesday, I'm hoping to paint the studio this week...and there are all sorts of bridal & bachelorette gigs this time of year, for makeup & burlesque! So I'll be hopping ALL WEEK long.

Just a quick note for anyone who reads this who comes to classes - there's no class at Demaira this month. We're officially opening the doors to Vaudezilla Studios on May 1 and will be offering classes for all skill levels...including workshops for established performers and guest teachers from all over the U.S. It's going to be epic, and you can be part of it! info coming soon:
