    Arielle B. Good Talks Burlesque!

    in Entertainment

    Arielle has been performing Burlesque for almost 2 years. Her husband is the biggest benefactor of the transformation. She’s a tomboy at heart, and getting dressed up in pantyhose and corsets would not have happened without have been introduced to the art form. She’s always been a confident, strong woman, but this has certainly amplified that to an infinite degree. She chose this out of her love for dance and her ability to command the attention of people with her seductive body language.She’s been producing her own shows at Velvet Curtain, a Swinger's club in Dallas, where the acts focus on the seduction and sultry style of Neo Burlesque, with some hints of Classical from time to time. She also teaches classes there to help the ladies of the swinger community become more confident and sexy, in order to spice up their love lives. It is very rewarding to see the ladies go from shy to confident beauties.
