Feb 7:

*FREE* Online Q & A, 12-1pm EST. I'm finally bringing vintage style into the future! Due to large international demand for my classes, and me being a mere mortal, I've decided to give online classes a go for teaching vintage hairstyling, make-up, posing techniques, as well as offering one-on-one coaching for new burlesque performers, models, and experienced performers looking to branch out into touring, traveling internationally, etc. I'd like to offer the first class for free to give you a chance to experience the format, give me feedback on how it can be more effective, and most importantly so I can meet all of YOU! I'd love to hear from you on what topics interest you most, so I can structure the next few classes, and see which ones are worth repeating, and also to see how the timing works for you in your time zone. This first class is limited to 25 participants, so don't delay in this one-time offer! Email me now with "Add Me To Feb 7th Q&A" in the subject to get added to the session.

Feb 9:

NYC - The Beat Girl, Sid Gold's Request Room, 165 W 26th Street, 8-9pm. I'll be singing some of my favourite jazz tunes, and playing drums for two hot burlesque performers, award-winning international superstar Mr. Gorgeous and more tba. Come by after work to snag one of the beautiful banquet booths, have a delicious meal and enjoy the show! This is a free show, but tips are welcome.

Feb 15:

Brooklyn, NY - 4 Cabaret, C'mon Everybody, 325 Franklin Ave. 2-4-1 Happy Hour from 6-8, show at 8pm. Free!

Feb 20:

Online Bombshell Hair Class, 12-1pm EST. For the first time, I'm offering my classes streaming live! I'll announce the exact topic we'll cover after the Feb 7 Q&A above (likely how to set hair, brushing out a roller set, creating Victory Rolls, etc), so if you'd like to suggest something sign up above for the first free session. I'm also offering a digital version of my vintage style How-To book Everyday Bombshell (regular price $8.99) for only $5 if you buy it bundled with this class! The class is limited to 25 participants, so don't delay.
