i dont have the talent to perform a living- i took ballet when i was a kid, that's about it. id like to pursue it as a hobby, but don't really know where to look. burlycon looks interesting, but it's alot of money to spend to go somewhere where i don't know anyone. i don't need someone to hold my hand, ive always been independent, but i imagine it'd be alot more fun to oggle at all pretty glittery stuff with a friend. i've looked into local theater, and i think i'll call up one of them to volunteer my time backstage. the one im looking at, though, doesn't mention anything about volunteering on their site, so im not sure it's an option.
im only coming across dance classes (not as risque as id like) and strip joints (a bit TOO risque for my taste). i looked into belly dancing lessons once, maybe ill try that.
does anyone have any advice for finding a local burlesque community? is there a search term i should try? btw, im 25 yrs old, im looking for an adult community- meaning there'd be peach schnapps. i enjoy a cocktail when im cooing over sequins....

As my regular every day less sparkly self and as a performer I've avoided manicures for some time. I just seem to jack them up before I even get home. A fellow performer just introduced me to Shellac by CND. I'm in love.
Amazing, gorgeous, INDESTRUCTIBLE nail polish. It lasts -no joke - two weeks. I got mine 2 days before a show that I was still building my costume for...got hot glue all over them... gem tac...all over them... just peeled the gunk off and there was no damage to my polish. I also used my nails to pick off a bazillion hot fix crystals from an old costume to reuse...no damage. *boggle*
Just wrote a big gushy review with pics, details and links here: Shellac Manicure Squee!
