Name?: Melissa
Stage Name?: Vivi Von Tease
How long have you been performing?: 4 years
What was/is your favorite number to perform?: Its too hard to pick just one! If you twist my arm hard enough I’ll narrow it to Cell Block Tango for the group number and Let me Entertain You for the solo 🙂
What does Burlesque mean to you?: Burlesque means having great friends, the best creative and emotional outlet and the best times I have ever had.
If you were an inanimate object what would you be?: Coffee. Steamy, perks you up and most everyone wants you 😉
If you could be any other Belle for a day who would it be?: It is too hard to pick just one, but probably Mistress Esmerelda because she’s always so high energy and comical one stage so I bet her life would be a blast!
What is your personal mantra?: Our time is limited and don’t allow the noise of others’ opinions drown out my own inner voice. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition
