A Quickie with Tiffany Carter!
Miss Nude Universe 1975, Tiffany Carter began her burlesque career at the infamous Pink Pussycat in Hollywood, California. An active, in-demand entertainer with Sparky Blaine’s American Showgirl agency, Tiffany toured the U.S., Canada, and Japan from the late 1960s through the 1980s. Tiffany has came out of burlesque retirement and become one of the most beloved and booked burlesque Legends within the international neo-burlesque community!
Are you performing at BHOF this year?
Yes, I am performing on Friday night! I am doing a great old classic song to begin with and I am just saying how much I love everyone!
What are some of your favorite things about the BHOF Weekender?
I love getting to meet all the new people in this show biz group!
Have you taught a class before?
I taught a class 2 years ago "Panels and Negligee’s and it was my favorite thing that year. I want to give back to all the new people coming into this business. One of the best things about teaching is to be able to give back, get and giving feedback, and helping performers learn all they want to learn from a legend. There are certain basics and looks that might not be happening in their generation and I think they should try to learn this from the legends.
What do you hope students will get out of your class?
Students should be able to walk out of my class saying, "Wow, I really learned a lot from that class, she really knows what she's talking about!” I hope they walk out with a big smile on their face and say they have learned way more than they expected!
Anything special they should wear or bring?
Wear comfortable clothes, as this class is a workout! Definitely bring shoes and stockings you can play with. If they like, bring a boa, scarf - anything to play and tease with! Most importantly, bring a great attitude.
What do you hope people will get out of your class?
I’ve covered some of that in my other answers, but I hope for them to say they learned a lot from a legend and want to see me more, because a one-hour class just isn't enough for all of what I want like to give back and teach! There is so, so, much to learn! I want to teach more and more - it has been the most fun and exciting for me!
You can take Tiffany's Chair Dance class this weekend in Las Vegas!
