That’s where I come in.
Who am I, and how can I help?
My name is Ginger Valentine and I have over 30 years of combined dance and burlesque experience. I have won multiple awards, including trophies at the Burlesque Hall of Fame. I’ve toured half the world in the biggest burlesque show in the world, Dita Von Teese’s Art of the Teese and The Copper Coupe and performed in hundreds of shows coast-to-coast. Through my own hard work, successes and failures, I’ve realised all my ambitions and created an adventure-filled, serious showgirl life beyond my wildest dreams. I can help you do the same.
But it wasn’t always like this…
I remember feeling just like you. I believed in myself, and knew I had the heart and drive, but I didn’t have the knowledge or expertise to take myself further. I tried so many things to break through to the next level, but I was stuck in a rut I couldn’t climb out of.
So I gave up.
Then one day, I woke up and realized that the only person who could truly prevent me from doing all I wanted, was me. I’d had it with the self pity and decided I was going to do something drastic to turn things around and get serious about my showgirl dreams.
I decided to do three things: put myself first, work with the best coaches I could find, and focus on working smarter, not harder. These simple changes weren’t easy, but my career quickly transformed and before I knew it I had landed my dream job and was touring the world.
Now I want to use my hard-won knowledge and experience to help you.
When I was getting started, all I ever wanted was for someone to take me under their wing and give me the focused one-on-one attention I needed to get my show on the road. Someone who could guide me and give me the tools that would help me for the rest of my career. Someone who could not only improve my burlesque career, but also help me reclaim my power and enthusiasm for my whole life.
I can help you fast track your way to your burlesque dreams and become a Serious Showgirl who stands out and books out.
