After a fantastic cross-country roadtrip, and a mini-performance break, I’m gearing up for fall/winter performances! Really, I’m still here! I’m just back from a (happy, surprise) appearance at Hubba Hubba Revue’s Halloween show at the Uptown in Oakland, and am feeling invigorated and energized after sharing the stage with the likes of Lola Martinet, LadyContinue reading “I’m still here!”

As Kierkegaard said, “Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward.” So much goodness withContinue reading “Springing into Spring”
I am far from experienced in the world of burlesque. Even though I’ve been dancing since I was a wee young thing, dance – and specifically burlesque and choreography – has only moved to the “professional” (semi-professional? slightly-above-amateur? I-make-money-at-this-but-not-alot?) realm in the last 3 years So maybe I’m not one to talk about how IContinue reading “On creating”
You may have noticed some small changes going on here at the Lavender Lair. In trying to align this site with my professional goals, I’m making it more of a “whole package” landing site for all-things-Ada, rather than simply a blog. I feel like that’s how I create, usually…and maybe how everyone creates: I startedContinue reading “New look!”
