On September 14th, I was in the Coney Island Film Festival Opening gala. I kicked off the night by gogo dancing on the Freak Bar with Dixie Disaster. Then, I served as stage kitten and magician’s assistant for the main show hosted by Adam Realman. Adam did some sword swallowing and sideshow which I assisted. Tigger! and Wae Messed did burlesque. Xander Lovecraft (sideshow), Greg Dubin (magic), and Sara Parks (comedy) also performed. I also got to show off my contortion skills by going into The Box.
My second public burlesque performance was on the Coney Island U.S.A. stage in the 14th Annual Follies Fromage Show on August 24th, 2017. I debuted my Cheese Act.
This show was the culmination of a six week intensive masterclass taught by Jo Weldon, Dirty Martini, Fem Appeal, Tigger!, Gal Friday, Tiger Bay, and Fancy Feast.
The show was hosted by Jo Weldon. Fellow performers from the 2017 master class included: Angelica Lavalier, Chinny Cherry, Dixie Disaster, Cecily Starr, and more. Aphrodite Rose, a 2016 masterclass alumni, guest starred and our stage kitten was Bad News Baby.
After the show, we all had a Teaser Wine Bath which is a Burlesque At The Beach tradition inspired by the burlesque legend Tirsa.
