Dancing in the Sheets:

A Symphonic Poem

In the St. Louis Burlesque and Variety community, many of us are nurturing younger artists in our homes. One of our own, Bibi Dazzle, has a very talented son who has received the opportunity to compete with his Senior Symphonic Orchestra group in Florida! With an industry job and not living near the school, participating in other fundraising has been a challenge.

Testimony from Bibi: “My 17 year old son has been playing the cello since 4th grade and has thrived because of the amazing program he has been so fortunate to participate in. My goal is to give back to that program by putting on a show and donating the proceeds. I had a crazy thought, and I did not think it would happen.......I was able to get Ray Gunn to come here and donate his cellist act!!!!”

Our Burlesque and Variety community strives to uplift and inspire one another, the young artists - our future - especially. There is insurmountable value in a community like ours. We have decided to come together and donate our performances to support this young artist. Please be so kind as to join us in our support and celebration of young talented humans.
