Episode 24 with Kellita Maloof

Showgirl Shaman Shares Her Secrets

Award Ribbon



July 11th, 2018

You'll learn so much about revealing what’s hidden in this riveting conversation with showgirl shaman, Kellita Maloof. I loved hearing this award winning burlesque dancer talk about audience participation, consent, the medicine of certain movements, immanence v. transcendence, what is “de-animation,” of the body and how dance has healed her and brought her back into hers. Listen to her journey from ballet to Brazilian dance to finally burlesque as she explains how Revelling, Revealing and Receiving are the keys to making the best art.
