So I Guess I’m a Burlesque Dancer Now?

I now have video proof of what I look like when dancing topless. It’s not great.BUT I’m trying REALLY hard to see it through a different lens.

Walk with me on this journey of positivity and pasties.

I don’t have a lot of pictures of me looking free or sexy, and certainly none of me dancing. I’ve always felt too uncoordinated, too cumbersome and big, too large on top and small on bottom, too self-conscious. I was over thirty when I realized I actually really loved dancing…in clubs…in the dark…with tequila on board, but I haven’t made much…
