You can find inspiration everywhere, even at a topless show! I first met Amber when I went to the opening of Fantasy. It's a topless review in Las Vegas where beautiful women get on stage and perform different fantasies, in a tasteful, sexy and fun way. These women can dance, and they have amazing bodies so yes I'll admit it, I'm a little jealous! I met Amber again in a television hosting class we were both taking with Marki Costello. We were talking one day and she opened up about how she constantly felt judged for following her heart and pursuing her passion for dance. Thanks for inspiring us Amber!
Follow Your Heart and You Can Never Go Wrong
What frustrates me, is society encourages children to play sports or participate in the arts all the way from childhood to high school, but when senior year is over, society only supports the student to go to college so "you can get a real job." First of all, in the dictionary job reads "a specific task done as part of the routine of one's occupation or for an agreed price." Whether it is filing in an office, searing fish at the five star restaurant or dancing in a topless show... It's a job!
I dance in a choreographed topless show in Vegas and I love it! Sure people judge me, but really they are judging me because they are inflicted and frustrated at themselves for suppressing their own reflection that they see in me. I am a woman. I am a sensual being. And I embrace this truth, and hopefully inspire others or at the very least entertain them. When I am performing onstage in Vegas, it's as if I am living one of the many characters within me; I really like this character. It is tough performing the same show night after night so you have to keep it alive within yourself otherwise you will look dead even though you are marking movement.
I love the freedom of expression that dance and acting allow. I like that I get to share my gift with the world. I love that in my line of work, I take others out of his/her everyday lifestyle and bring them into my artistic world. I am proud of myself for believing that I could and have made my dreams my reality!
Follow your heart and you can never go wrong. As long as you are living truthfully from within, you will be rich in happiness. Remember, you have to do something in life, so it might as well be something you love; it is a choice!
