As I mentioned in my previous post we hit the road down south to Wellington so that I could perform and attend at the New Zealand burlesque festival hosted and organised by Red Rascal Productions ( Kerry and Danny Rascal) I was beyond excited at attending the international workshops and of course meeting the performers.
On the Friday I attended Jett Adore's workshop at kao's dance studio's, followed by the Vintage Bazaar in Newtown before heading to the Paramount for tech rehearsal. My La Luna routine was chosen as my performance and I had the pleasure of performing this for my friends and family that night at the Promenade Ball, apart from my balloon having a mind of its own ( just keep smiling and dancing on) the night was amazing. The internationals blew me away with their innovative performances and their completely approachable antics backstage. It was great to catch up with everyone that we knew online and yet had not meet in person.
The dynamite duo "Swing out Sisters" got a hold of La Luna
