Private Tails is an International Avant-Garde, Burlesque Extraordinaire. Based in the Washington D.C area, she has been performing burlesque since 2005. She is currently the Proud Producer of the DC Gurly Show and in charge of the DC Regional Burlypicks! Previous to her burlesque debut, Private Tails was no stranger to the stage. She received a double bachelor’s degree in Theater for both Acting and Directing from Lycoming College, the accredited Liberal Arts post-secondary school in Williamsport, PA and she has been dancing and entertaining since childhood.
Private Tails has her own unique style and enjoys mixing it up. She has put together numbers that draw from classical burlesque, hip-hop, boi-lesque, Broadway and more. As burlesque is the “Art of the Tease,” she doesn’t have show a lot of skin to have an entertaining performance. She cleans it up every year as the emcee of Washington DC’s Youth Pride every April, and she goes all out for the mature audience.
The photos and large crowds she draws prove that this performer has talent. She knows how to charm the large bills out of the pockets of her audience and the prosperity is spread to the hosting venue.
She is also the creator and Producer of Private Tease Productions, which is a monthly variety show that pulls from Private Tease Prep–the school she also founded and runs. She books performers all over to teach and perform at her Phase 1 home. She hopes to see you at one or more upcoming shows!
Private Tails is a seasoned performer who can be ready for a show in as little as day, by pulling a gem from her tiaras of experience. She also enjoys the creative process in developing new numbers and looks forward to the opportunity to whip up a fresh new performance. She is the current reigning Miss Gay United States Capital City Femme Fatale (2013), the First Miss Phase 1 (2010) since the revival, and the eternal Miss Nubian DMV (2009).
