The Dirty Blonde Wins The Shake Our Souls Burlesque Competition!!! Watch out, New Orleans!
It’s official! The Dirty Blonde is the winner of the Shake Our Souls Burlesque Competition!!! A huge huge THANK YOU to everyone who voted for her YouTube video!!!
Out of a field of hundreds of performers, Dirty’s classic burlesque act was selected as one of the final 3, and from there the public chose her as the winner!
The competition is sponsored by the amazing new documentary “Save Our Souls“, a film about the kick-ass Slow Burn Burlesque troupe and the beat of burlesque in post-Katrina New Orleans. It takes us on a wild feather-and-glitter-filled romp through a city that has been “destroyed and rebuilt one pastie at a time”. Check it out! It’s truly an fun, intense, and beautiful movie.
The other two finalists were the amazing Lula Hoop-Garou of Dallas and Lady Jack of Chicago, and Dirty feels incredibly honored to be in their company. These are some seriously talented performers. (In fact, Lula Hoop-Garou even performed at this year’s Burlesque Hall Of Fame Weekend!) Even though they won’t have the opportunity to appear in New Orleans, they perform very regularly in awesome venues in their home cities and across the country, so check out one of their shows as soon as you can! You won’t regret it!
Thank you so much for getting involved in this competition and helping a lovely lady live her dream of performing in New Orleans!!! I’ll see you there! 😉
