We thought it was a one-time thing.

It doesn't matter what size or shape you are. Burlesque is about feeling positive about who you are, about knowing how to shake what you have and being proud of it.

All of us grew up in the punk rock era, when you had to be super-cool. We're sick of that. We want to go to shows and have fun, smile and be goofy.

Three or four of us didn't have any talent, and we felt really stupid.
