OH...MY...GOD! TODAY IS MY 10 YEAR BURLESQUE ANNIVERSARY!!! 10 years ago this evening I stepped on the burly q stage for the first time at Mary's Attic with The Ripettes. I don't even know how to process where that has taken my life in the past 10 years.
3 awards
3 BHoF competitions
8 years in the Burlesque Top 50
Top 10 Most Influential of the Decade
10 years of Show-Me Burlesque Festival
A whole Netflix original episode
Playing myself as Jeez Loueez in short films and web series
Several BurlyCons
Creating an original festival and production that's become bigger than all of us.
I've become a producer, an emcee, an instructor, a personality.
A billion festivals, shows, parties, events, road miles, air miles, lost pasties, lost competitions, tears, smiles, standing ovations, bruised knees, new friendships, new family, 4 troupes, hundreds of students taught, and a lifetime of memories.

Thanks for joining me on this wild ride, yall. Thank you for supporting me. For seeing me. To every producer that has booked me, every performer I have hired, every photographer, videographer, costumer, student, and audience member. I THANK YOU. I never dreamed burlesque would take me this far. Like, 10 years though?!?!

I've taught burlesque to lashings of awesome hens, birthday gals, drama students and corporate clients - each time, it's been commented what fun it was and how people sashayed out with their head a little higher 🌟 If you want someone to teach you the art of burlesque, inspire you with body confidence, brainstorm your act or perform at your show, I'll be there in the twirl of a tassel 🌟 Chrissy Sparks at @dollhousephotographyuk HMUA: @zanetasw

Four years ago I had the incredible honor of doing this! Speaking at TedX was one of the greatest and most nerve wracking experiences of my life. I spoke for 18 minutes, with NO timer or cue cards, and with a goal to be organic, speak passionately, entertain everyone, and most importantly, to be THE MOST SPARKLY AND NAKED TED PRESENTER OF ALL TIME.

Let's talk about life, art, being human, and doing our best.
Also, tequila and titties.

Friends are for exactly this. .
What can be better?

Perhaps big plans for the future, extrapolating on the above in delicious ways.

IT'S TIME FOR OUR NEXT HEADLINER!!!!!!!!! 🎉🎉🎉 @cecesinclair !!!!!!!!🎉🎉🎉 She's a pocket rocket, a shimmy shaker, a bump and grinder and a pure powerhouse of energy!

This dynamic performer loves to blend modern influences with the classic style of burlesques golden era. She has featured as one of @21stcenturyburlesque magazine top 100 influential figures in the industry and has been bumping and grinding her way across UK and Europe ever since she began.

@missfifilaroux and @missemeraldelle have have both been wanting to bring Cece back to Ireland for their respective shows so why not give her the recognition she deserves as one of the UK's shit hottest performers and absolute gem by being one of the headliners at the first ever Cork Burlesque Festival Gala Show!! She's sassy, she's classy, it's CECE SINCLAIR!!!!!!! 📸 @neilnezkendall

Dear burlesque peers, fans and readers. Editor Holli Mae here. Now that the #burlesquetop50 madness has subsided, I want to thank you all for your ongoing support of the magazine, and the poll. Over three times as many votes were cast this year and that will influence decisions about the future of the poll. ☆

The editorial calendar has been quieter over the past year, mostly due to health issues for me and key contributors, but there is a lot going on behind the scenes, and much yet to come. Thank you for sticking with us for the past 12 years. ☆

Wishing you all a glittering 2019. Much love, HM xo .
