Miss Jo “Boobs” Weldon, Founder of the New York School of Burlesque and author of The Burlesque Handbook further piqued my interest when she posted an article in September. I felt compelled to engage with the material as this is an ethical issue so relevant in the age of social media.
On Friday afternoon last week I had the great privilege of having an exclusive audience with THEE Miss Polly Rae, the vision (in all senses of the word) behind risqué burlesque-inspired musical review, The Hurly Burly Show. When I caught wind that this West End hit was winging its way to Emperors Palace in Johannesburg on the 27th of October 2012, I felt compelled to instigate some promotion thereof. What a great opportunity this event is for the South African burlesque community to weave its tendrils on a larger tapestry, and Miss Polly is so gracious to assist!

Salut! Merci beaucoup for all your encouraging feedback on my first
blog post via facebook,
I am positively tickled
It was only too apt that I
is Booty-full' on the 31st of August, a 'Blue Moon' in
Cape Town, but
due to very poor internet co-operation had to delay
uploading it until the next
Auspicious signs from the universe are
calling out that it is time to get
my Full-(moon)-booty out there in a
Demi Monde here. I am VERY excited to debut my new 'Burlesque Blog'! The beauty of being a Neo-Burlesque Artiste is being able to proliferate the glamorous heritage of the vintage era on the new 'stages' of social media.
