All the News That's Fit To Strip
Angela Richardson, who performs with Cherry Pop Burlesque as Olive Talique, chats about tassel-twirling workshops, feminism and her favorite numbers. A quick tease:
"You think about going to a tassel-twirling workshop, and you think, "hmmm ..." but in fact, it's really excellent to be in this room with a bunch of women who are shyly wondering about this and by the end are just laughing and reveling in the female energy. That sounds corny, but there really is something cool about thinking, "We're all just gorgeous and this is great."
