Here’s a few more things related to my story on Portland’s neo-burlesque scene.
First item: Here are two (printable) photos that didn’t run with the story. I have plenty of pictures that I can’t post here and will never grace newsprint, but here are a couple that didn’t run just because I never got the chance to interview the performer. Her name is Ludella Hahn. She lives in Boston, but originally from Maine. Click the pic to see it.
Second item: Amanda Wing, aka Cha Cha Velour, is involved with the Burlesque Hall of Fame out in Las Vegas. She’s originally from Lewiston. To find out more about the BHF go here: www.burlesquehall.com
Also, Velour opened Las Vegas’ first burlesque training studio. Find out all about it by clicking here: www.lasvegasburlesqueclasses.com
Third item: The ladies of Whistlebait Burlesque (Vivian Vice and Jolene Divine) are teaching a class on Saturday Oct. 20, 2012 right here in Portland. I’ll put the details below…
