Name?: Leslie
Stage Name?: Tabitha Katz
How long have you been performing?: Since May of 2015
What was/is your favorite number to perform?: Anything new, or that I haven’t done in a while. Novelty, adventure, indulged curiosity – I need it.
What does Burlesque mean to you?: Me. It’s my me. My me-ness. I do it just for me, and for no one else. It has reconnected me with the parts of myself that get brushed aside by the daily grind. (See what I did there?)
If you were an inanimate object what would you be?: Something that is never there when you look for it, and then shows up at random times when you don’t. Like a hair elastic, or a pen.
If you could be any other Belle for a day who would it be?: Frankenbelle. I’d take bits and pieces from all of them and smoosh them together, ’cause they’re all amazing for different reasons.
What is your personal mantra?: Who I am today may or may not be who I am tomorrow. However, both possibilities are pretty freakin’ cool.
