What I didn't like

I would have liked the opportunity to buy a CD afterwards. I loved the music. (I did find the music on SoundCloud, So good!)

My overall impression

You are promised a burlesque show, but what you get with this is much more interesting and wonderful. The show is basically a concert. An intimate concert with dancing and burlesque.

And intimate is the key. She has no problem bringing the show to each member of the audience so we feel included and spoken to. Some members were given glasses and draped with a flashy boa, some were spoken to directly with eye contact. And she wasn’t shy about dancing with people, sitting in their laps or taking their hands and speaking to them in earnest.

But the magical part of the show wasn’t the dancing, burlesque or flashy lights. It was the message she was giving us. One of loving yourself, and one of being a part of a much larger universe of love. It really resonated with me. And that message of positivity we were left with made me smile the rest of the day, and into today. Thank you, Rayn!
