I wanted to let you know that I won Penthouse G-String's Gold Medal for Best Show and Silver Medal for Overalls! I am so excited! The competition was a 4 day event, which took place at the beautiful Penthouse Club in New Orleans.
Penthouse club hand picks 15 ladies out of several hundred in the whole industry to compete. When you are invited to compete, you are already considered to be one of the best in the whole industry. Every lady put on great shows and worked together.
The stage crew was amazing and I can't thank the owner, his wife, and Richele for their support and professionalism with this event. Did I mention this was also the 10th anniversary for this event?
My show and meaning of it:
My show was the ballerina from the jewelry box coming to life and a woman coming into her sexuality. Opened with a silhouette screen, hair in bun, tiara, and beautiful, classical tutu, and pointe shoes. Then the screen was opened in the middle to show me ''The ballerina from the jewelry box.'' After the opening music stops, I start to come to life and realize that the screen thats opened I can walk threw (awakening process), I take my tiara off and place it on a gold glitter jewelry box (rid of old programming and rules), 1st ballet move after this awakening process is a combre back or por de bras back in a huge 4th position (chest toward ceiling with arms wide open is freedom), ballet pointe work to heavy metals finest ''Apocalyptica'' (journey threw emotions), Classic strip with playfulness and letting hair down (cleansing, letting loose, being yourself, and coming into female sexuality), pole tricks (progression and hard work), chair (balance), parasol (grace, playful, opening and closing of parasol is us putting up walls and the struggle to let those walls down in a healthy manner and someone by your side for support), aerial hammock (essence of a woman - inner strength, beauty, sensual, graceful, and also added- unattainable), Hot wax on a table so everyone could see me because I am petite (taking power back and not allowing others to hurt me, control of own life.) Throwing out promo - appreciation of all fans and people in general.
I know I put a lot into this set and I'm so happy that people not only loved it for entertainment value but, understood it as well, especially in an environment that doesn't see ballet or aerialist often. To me thats so awesome! I am suppose to receive video footage of my shows, so, that you all can see.
