Almost 10 years ago I moved from a small provincial town to Amsterdam to start a new life after a period of depression and anxiety. It was a huge leap of faith for me because I was suffering from agoraphobia at that time. I really had to push myself out of the door and into new places.
A few months later I found a place that made me feel at home. That was Rasalila, where I took up poledancing, aerials, bellydance and Irish dance. But more importantly, it's the place where my burlesque journey began. Rasalila offered a warm and safe environment where I could experiment and grow, where I learned to take the stage and where I found love and support from a bunch of truly amazing people I'm proud to call my friends.
It's been a mindblowing journey to get where I am today. I own a business, I perform, I create and I teach. I'm out there. And Rasalila has played a major part in getting there. This year we're celebrating Rasalila's 10th birthday. I'm super proud and grateful to be part of the team and to perform at the anniversary party tomorrow night!!
