*New Video* Big Ass Boa- Jeez Loueez- Minneapolis Burlesque Fest

Minneapolis truly is another home away from home and I was so thrilled to be a special guest at the Minneapolis Burlesque Festival this past October. Three nights of INCREDIBLY diverse talent, backstage commradery, and of course the legendary late night burlesque after-party shenanigans (I DONT WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT- THERE ARE STILL SCARS…LITERALLY). I had the honor of performing my latest piece as well as dancing with The Fringe Factor, spearheaded by Chicago choreographer Lindsey Marks | Lady Jack, AND whoop it up with Foxy Tann and the Wham Bam Thank You Ma’am’s. A full weekend that left me glittery and hungover indeed! ENJOY! xo
