Wow this was very helpful! I was entranced by the idea of feather fans at first but decided Id first master the art of burlesque striptease and a feather boa first but thanks to your post now I know I should perhaps leave fans for later. I was looking into buying these DVDs by Jo Weldon
Im going to wait until I save up enough for fans because I really think they are beautiful. Thank you for your input! Im a newbie so this has been very valuable to me! :)
Ooh I love your feather boa video!!! Thanks Valentina! I think Im going to start with the boa, then fans especially way before I try using a hoop and fans haha. Please let me know whenever you do get into fans! That would be super!
I haven't watched Jo's videos but I've taken some classes with her and she is amazing. She definitely knows her stuff!
thats great! now I know to buy the dvds!
Love the chairs and fire video. Fire tassels rock!
Oh I love chair dancing! I have a chair routine but I barely ever do it. Chair and hoop can work together well.
I used to do a balloon routine. *sigh* My persona was kinda country, good ol' girl from the South... I used to dress like a cowgirl and I bought these awesome guns that have the "BANG" flag!
Very cute! Do you have any videos or pictures?
My friend does a balloon routine! She did one last night to "Candyman" by Christina Aguilera and had some of the balloons filled with candy! She also did a balloon act to that Lady Gaga song with the word "bang" in it a lot and had a pin attached to the end of a toy gun.
