I performed two acts in January at Bombshell Betty's childhood memories themed show, this pink pompom confection and my favorite chair dance with the Showgirl Chorus. It wasn't as highly attended as the December show, but we had fun. I had fresh blood in the audience, which is always a thrill for me. I had a prop malfunction (I couldn't get my pompom "fans" to untie on one end, so they were attached like a "V" for the whole act), but I managed to make it work. If I ever have time to create a new act, it is going to be made all of velcro! Nothing to untie. Untying makes me really nervous because so much can go wrong, and this time something did. But it was fun and it's a really joyful act, so I was all smiles during it. I have never performed at this weight before (still on the weight gain train) which made me feel a little off my game, but I was happy to find these photos that make me feel pretty nonetheless!
Here are a few shots from a super, super fun choreography Betty taught us. I have always loved this act and even though I haven't perfected some of the arm work in it, I have SO much fun performing it.
Members of the Showgirl Chorus performing "Feelin' Good". The wonderful Cooki Crumbles, the marvelous Boysenberry Cupcake and me, Yve Jobs.
So, that was lots of fun! It will be a few months before I perform again, I'm still waiting for another chance to do my flamenco act which I love the most. I will keep you posted!
