World Mental Health Day & A Live Stream with Dita Von TeeseSapphira
“[Burlesque] can be a kind of therapy if you approach it in that way.” Dita Von Teese
On World Mental Health Day 2021 it’s a reminder that burlesque provides such a liberating platform of self-expression, many people worldwide are finding it has mental health benefits both on and off stage and burlesque figurehead, Dita agrees. I was able to present Dita with a butterfly, a symbol of rebirth and transformation that is so apt for the process of leaving trauma behind and growing.
You can watch the full live stream Meet & Greet I had the honour of having with the burlesque figurehead last week as part of the Night of the the Teese live stream.
If you have been struggling with feelings of low mood, anxiety and uncertainty. You are not alone. This pandemic and the current situation has been hard for everyone so remember to take care of yourself, talk about your feelings and don’t hide them and spend time in nature, too.
My own memoir ‘Burlesque or Bust’ is a story about finding one’s self through the artform of burlesque after a breakdown, has the humorous chapter ‘What Would Dita Do?’. It has some of my own tips and methods I used which I learnt with More To Life and Soul Voice ®, you might find these work for you, too.
