sh Salon June 2016
Salon: a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation. These gatherings often consciously followed Horace's definition of the aims of poetry, "either to please or to educate"
June 2016 sh Salon, we bring you three beautiful performers from Nashville Tennessee:
Is a body positive, shimmy shaking, fire eating performance artist, writer and teacher.
She began her burlesque warrior journey in 2008, learning from the best in the business, Michelle LAmour. Since then, she moved to Nashville, TN, and now produces and performs with Music City Burlesque, and started her finishing school for fierce ladies, Delinquent Debutantes, in 2010.
She's taught more than 300 women the power of the shimmy in my burlesque classes. Theyre yoga teachers, soul searchers, entrepreneurs, and corporate vixens.
Shan De Leers:
Is a Professional Captivator and Bawdy Confidence purveyor based out of Nashville Tennessee.
She spends her time as Studio Manager at Nashville's only Burlesque Finishing School Delinquent Debutantes, where she produces Nashville's only UNCENSORED monthly burlesque revue, bringing naked dancing dames to Music City. Shan is a performing member of Nashville's blockbuster Music City Burlesque.
The exact origins of Miss Kitana Louise are unknown.
While those closest to her confirm that she is, in fact, a proud Texan who has lived in Nashville for almost a decade now, the background of her family and culture remain a mystery. Rumor has it that the young starlet comes from a line of powerful Spanish conquistadors who were bewitched by beautiful Island maidens somewhere in the Pacific many years ago.
It is said that her name, Kitana, is an homage to the long line of conquerors and warriors from which her father came. The famous "katana" sword, was a reinvention of the ancient Japanese Samurai sword dating back to the 14th century. This sword differed in that, unlike it's predecessors, she was worn in what is now known as "katana style," with the blade facing toward it's warrior. Traditionally, Samurai swords were worn with the cutting edge face down, away from it's wearer.
As the story goes, the showgirl's family and friends noted her prowess and passion even in her youngest years, and with a slight twist on the historical sword's title, she was gifted the beloved name, Kitana Louise, because of her ability to fearlessly take the stage, and life, "cutting edge up."
You all know the format!
Q & A session
Food and Drink
The food part of the format has evolved for 2016. Along with the performers, we are highlighting local chefs/restaurants. That's right, we are partnering with some of the best talent in the culinary fields here in Columbia SC. We are applying the same concept to them that we do to our performers; they cook what they absolutely love to cook (may be on a menu somewhere, may not) and then they tell you why they do what they do (what makes them tick and so on) and a Q&A session.
For the June's sh salon we are pleased to announce that Nate Park, the Chef de Cuisine of Hampton Street Vineyard will be with us. Nate will be crafting a custom menu specifically for sh Salon. We are so excited to have Nate and Hampton Street Vineyard along for the ride.
Tickets are $50, includes show, food, and drink.
