How I Spent My Summer, by Kay Licious:
This year was my second time going to the amazing Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend in Las Vegas (fondly known as BHOF) and it was even BETTER than last year! It's hard to put into words. Just trust me that if you love burlesque, you NEED to go! It's the best of the best from around the world, plus dozens of incredible and inspiring burlesque Legends (performers from the 40's - 70's).
Here are a few photos to demonstrate the amount of fun I had:
Shortly after BHOF, it was off to my second home, Toronto, for the Toronto Burlesque Festival. This year was my 4th year attending and performing in the festival and it truly has become a sort of homecoming for me. I have grown to love so many performers in the Toronto burlesque community. This year was especially meaningful for me, as I got to perform my fan dance to Don't Stop Believin'. That song has become my burlesque anthem and my act to it reminds me to never give up on my dreams.
Fantastic Fall Frenzy!
NOW, after a super fun summer, I have a fantastic fall lined up!
I'm teaching Burlesque Basics, as well as Burlesque Choreo/Act Development at Serpentine Studios and have a wonderful group of students that are eager to learn and ready for fun.

I started off my busy fall of events by performing at the Rockabilly Riot Weekender at the Seahorse. The Riot is always a fun crowd and I have a great time.
A few of my upcoming events are as follows. There are lots of chances to see me perform int he next month or so!
First off, on Sat. Oct 10 I'll be performing in Cabaret - 50 Shades of Bass at the Company House. This event consists of 2 amazing DJs and a bevy of beautiful burlesque performers. It's sure to be a great time!
On Thurs. Oct 17 I'll be part of the entertainment lineup for Royal Blue, a fundraiser for the Kidney Foundation. Royal blue is my signature colour and I've been dubbed the 'Blue Diamond Diva of Halifax', so it's no surprise that I'm looking forward to strutting my blue best!
HalCon is Halifax's Sci-fi, Fantasy, and Comics Convention and on Nov. 7 Pink Velvet Burlesque will be performing at the Official Pre-Show and Party! I've got a brand new, fun number planned for this show and I know the other Pink Velvet performers are definitely letting their inner geeks and nerds out! It'll be a blast!
There's more on the horizon, so make sure you check back to see what I'm up to, and Like me on Facebook!
