Showgirl's Life Podcast | Ep. 2 Running off to join the circus with special guest Eileen Ryans Scott

From circus Showgirl to classic Las Vegas Showgirl, Eileen Ryans Scott tells the real truth about what it was like to be an African-American dancer in Las Vegas. She explains how “advance” audition notices alerted her to attend an audition and how she eventually landed her dream job as a Showgirl in Donn Arden’s Jubilee!

Eileen reminisces about her love of her time as a Jubilee Showgirl and the community that was there for her during her ten and a half years in the show. She also talks about how becoming a Showgirl pulled her out of her shell and allowed her to be seen. Listen to her fascinating story now!
