After an episode of The Paul O'Grady Show (when it was on at teatime!) dedicated to burlesque and featuring a glimpse of the glorious Immodesty Blaize, a 15 year old Scarlet began to dream of a career as a showgirl. But it took five years to build up the confidence and have the initiative to use Google before she contacted burlesque artist Trixie Blue to enquire about lessons.
The first lesson was as enjoyable as she'd hoped and she quickly booked more with Trixie. After 5 weeks of private lessons, she went for coffee with her teacher where she was told that they should stop having lessons, as Trixie wanted her to sign a contract with the House of Trixie Blue agency. This was more than Scarlet had ever thought would happen; literally a dream come true.
Since then, and under the guidance of Trixie, Scarlet's love of burlesque has grown more than she ever could have anticipated. From performing to being in the audience, there isn't an aspect to this industry that she doesn't enjoy or want to explore further. So keep an eye out for future ventures and routines on the website and on the many social networking applications Scarlet uses, with varying degrees of success.
