And so I checked out a local venue in Denver that was a cabaret where they had burlesque performances regularly and held a class, and I took the class, and the requirement for graduation was performing in front of a live audience. And it was a soldout unveil, and it went so well, I wrote an article about how taking your sexy garments off can empower a woman ‘coz I am all about women’s empowerment and babes being secure in their sexuality.
