The first time I met Innocence in person was at the Alice in Wonderland Nerdlesque show we were both performing in. I was struck by how open, friendly, and optimistic she is. This is a person who is not afraid of hard work, has a HUGE heart and is open and welcoming to everyone. She is also an incredibly talented dancer and performer. I am thrilled to shine the Spot Light on this lovely cast member!
L&F: How did you get started in performance and what brought you to burlesque?
Innocence: I was born right here in Sin City. I started performing with my grandmothers senior tap troupe “Nevada State Troupers” when I was 7 and with Silvers Doll Dancers a performing troupe. I was a varsity cheerleader and shortly after High School I started stripping at Dream Girls. I have stripped in Arizona, New Mexico, New Mexico,Illinois, and Nevada before retiring in 2010. While visiting a friend at the Orleans Casino during Viva I saw his schedule which had a burlesque showcase , and burlesque bingo. I said,”what is this” and “how can I try?” Shortly after I started researching how to to get my g-string on the stage I found an ad for nerdlesque submissions. I messaged Penni and she welcome me right away. Since then I’ve been kittening and watching as much burlesque as I can both video and live. I just recently volunteered at BHOF. I saw the showcases and met the legends. It was awesome and truly inspiring I really feel like I fit in here and am so proud to consider myself a part of this beautiful burlesque community. Katerina HoneyBunny was the 1st person i talked to in the burlesque community she was very helpful and encouraging
L&F: You are performing in our DC vs Marvel show as Supergirl. Can you tell us a little about why you chose that act?
Innocence: I chose supergirl because she’s a super hero. She wears a cute outfit and boots. I like her because she is shy and awkward in her “normal” life and she can do a costume change faster than a speeding bullet!
