Burlesque is an exciting and expanding dance medium. As a burlesque and belly dancer I think about the boundaries I am willing to cross. Particularly, what I, as a dancer am willing to expose. Most of the the tapestries in my Burlesque series are based upon photographs I have taken backstage at different Burlesque shows as we, the dancers prepare for a performance. 


Begun with a backstage photo, Pas de Deux speaks to the duality of a dancer’s persona and the woman within. This work also expresses the fellowship and respect that develops between dancers.
