She may be new to the world of burlesque, but this fiery ginger is anything but new to the stage.Brooklyn was first bitten by the performing arts bug at age 7 when she performed in her first musical theatre production. After that, her love affair with the stage began and she began dedicating her spare time performing in local theatre and taking dance classes. This creative path eventually led Brooklyn to a career in fashion and beauty, however it left very little time for performing. After a short hiatus from the stage and with a new love for the art of burlesque, Brooklyn is thrilled to get back to her roots and hit the stage once again, to perform with the amazing Hell on Heels ladies!!
“Great dancers are not great because of their technique… they are great because of their passion.”
