This is a clip from the documentary No Strings Attached by Lisa Whitmer. She and her crew filmed me at Tease-O-Rama while teaching a version of my glove-and-stocking-peel class.
I love this clip because it shows the view I usually see — all the smiling faces and playfulness. I’m a lucky woman to get to do this for a living, and I know it!
See the trailer (which shows me as a bumping Godzilla among the goddesses) at http://www.lisawhitmer.com
“Bursting with sex appeal and kitschy charm, No Strings Attached is a playful romp through the world of burlesque, from its origins in the late nineteenth century to its contemporary revival. The film provides a peek through feathers and glitter at the Scenic Sisters, a San Francisco duo, as it prepares for the annual, international Tease-O-Rama convention.”
