Lady Velvet Cabaret was honoured (and frankly a little star struck) to meet 2010’s winner of Miss Burlesque Australia, Rita Fontaine during her short stay in Perth in early June. Rita helped us out at our Candyland show on Friday June 3 by transforming into her alter-ego, Johnny Castrati, to host the show for us. She also performed two breath-taking acts at our Lucha Royale show the very next night and absolutely blew our audience away! On Sunday June 5, Rita taught a once-in-a-lifetime workshop focusing on the art of burlesque performance and developing your burlesque persona. We received great feedback after this workshop from the girls who attended and Rita did an amazing job helping these budding starlets spin their ideas and visions into gold! We would like to wish Rita all the best for the future as we hope you enjoyed your time in Perth as much as we enjoyed having you here Rita! It was truly an honour and we hope you’ll be back soon.
