The funniest thing about rehearsing a burlesque number...

is that you have to keep redressing over and over.  That's the most tiring part of practicing a number, not the dancing.  Since the many layers of the costume are all-important, it seems I spend more time practicing the timing of when a certain garment's coming off than I do on the actual movement.  Seriously, I've taken these panties off a dozen times to music tonight, rehearsing for Friday's live show!  And I had an electrical failure in a hand prop, and no time to replace it before the show, so that's out of the number.  Oh, well.  I'll just muddle through somehow, I guess!  I will be dropping clothes right and left, and that's probably what the audience cares about!


  1. I love your videos on youtube, You are the best! I'm just starting burlesque lessons and i'm so excited. (o:
