Moonlighting in the Limelight

For many years now, i have seen burlesque performers have to hide their burlesque careers away from their employers of their day jobs (‘vanilla’ life) as they worry about the impact it has on them.

Saying No in Burlesque…and life for that matter

I manage on the social media forums one group that is for PAID Burlesque Jobs. The key is PAID. Yet time and time again my cursor has to hit the ‘delete’ button next to posts who dont realise/care/give a f about the rules of posting on this group. Ultimately PAID. Seems so strange that unpaid

How Do I Manage It All?

At request here is the new date for the Business of Burlesque. This workshop is presentation based so sit down and drink tea with me. The idea behind this is to offer advise on how to market yourself in burlesque, working with contracts and becoming more professional in behaviour no matter how inexperienced you are.

Going Back To Go Forward

Sometimes it is so easy to become self absorbed and lost to the transient world, that we need to go back to see how to go forward. I strongly believe you cant go forward without knowing where you and what you do have been. No point repeating unless its a tribute and to re-educate otherwise its just tacky.

Perceiving Burlesque – Thoughts, Problems and Logic

  Over the last few weeks I have come into contact with so many more people with opinions on burlesque than I have ever done. Whether this is due to the fact (and probably) I have been scheduled to the hilt with shows or the fact I actually spoke to people about it; my eyes
