Viva Dallas Burlesque! Grand Opening! Shoshanna Portnoy!

Shoshana fell in love with studying people at an early age, and photography a little later when she received an SLR 
as a birthday present. She merged the two passions and found a love of portraiture. Shoshana went on to graduate 
with a BA in Photography from Texas A&M University- Commerce and taught photography while launching her 
successful freelance editorial photography business for an impressive client list of magazines, businesses, and nonprofits.
A professional photographer and lover of big band and swing, burlesque, and vintage culture for over a 
decade, she launched Through the Looking Glass Studio in 2008 (in her home garage). She opened Dallas Pinup 
and moved the studio there in Fall 2011. Shoshana has been producing Viva Dallas Burlesque since 2009, at 
Lakewood Theatre 2010- Jan2015, then monthly with Viva Dallas Burlesque, and then monthly also with Cirque du 
Burlesque- making two shows monthly. Her productions have sold the most tickets in a calendar year- the largest 
burlesque show in the country. Aside from being Viva Dallas Burlesque's producer, Shoshanna  also shoots pinup 
photography, edits Pin Curl Magazine, and also produced Hot Rods n' Heels through 2013 -- an annual burlesque 
and car show held at the Lakewood.
