This workshop is part of the Black History Month Workshop Series curated by Sophie Sucré at The Philadelphia Burlesque Academy.

Vera started her career in burlesque back in 2012 as a member of the locally based troupe, The Hoochie Coochie Girls. Since then, Vera has performed at venues and festivals all over the country including Jeezy’s Juke Joint in Chicago, The Cupcake Revue in Ft.Lauderdale and The Show Me Burlesque Festival.

In 2019, Vera competed for the first time at The Kansas City Burlesque Festival for the title of Queen and walked away with the crown! She is now the longest reigning Queen of The Kansas City Burlesque Festival due to COVID-19.

During the pandemic, Vera started her own burlesque dedicated YouTube channel to help beginners go further, faster in burlesque and document her own showgirl journey. From January 2020 to January 2021, she grew her audience from less than 1,000 subscribers, or as she calls them *Sparkly People* to over 17,000!

Vera is also the co-founder of the hottest burlesque and variety entertainment troupe in St.Louis, Glimmer Cabaret.
