In One Week....

In one week we will performing our very FIRST debut performance at Selva in downtown Sarasota at 10:00pm! I have been so busy preparing for the show,  I haven't really had time to think about what a huge deal all of this is. It has started to hit me the past couple days now that people are buying tickets and we are upon our last couple rehearsals. The amount of support and excitement swirling around the debut performance is overwhelming. It shows me that Sarasota is ready and eager for burlesque to be a part of the arts scene here. The other Diamond Dames and I have been feverishly making stage props (giant lollipops being one of them), practicing tassel twirling, embellishing costumes with rhinestones just to name a few! We are so incredibly excited to finally perform and show everyone how Burlesque is done!

Hot Off The Press!

The Observer newspaper interviewed me last week about starting Sarasota's first Burlesque Troupe. I was so delighted when I saw the article yesterday online for the first time! It will be on news stands tomorrow..I have a feeling once this story hits Black Diamond will be on the map! Check out the link below and read the article :)

Lazer Tits! Don't burn your bra, BLAST IT!!

The other day I was informed of this hilarious website! Since becoming a burlesque dancer people come up to me all the time telling me about the weirdest things they think i'll like such as; "Hey there's this website called LAZER TITS that you would love!! " Wasn't sure what to expect, but once I read more about it, they really do have a great message behind their work.
"For centuries the female bosom has been wrongfully held in the prison of maternal duty and manboy motor-boating. The time has come to blow the cell doors open for breasts! Howl for hooters! Get toasted by tits! Behold the blazing boobs! It’s time to get ZAPPED!!!! LAZERTITS looks into the past and changes the future one broad at a time. What will YOU say when your kids ask where you were during the revolution? Don’t burn your bra, BLAST IT!!!"
