Today’s episode features Amelia Bruff, former Bluebell dancer, magic assistant, line captain and swing from Donn Arden’s Jubilee. Amelia, or Millie as she was known to cast and crew, spent a total of 14 years on the Jubilee stage. During two separate experiences in the show, she shares how different each time was in shaping her confidence, work ethic and stepping into being a woman.
We discuss the differences between real showgirls and the “showgirls” that walk along the streets of Vegas posing for pictures with tourists. And how the high standards we were held to as the “real deal” on the Vegas stages helped cultivate an inner strength and pride in ourselves and everything we do. Amelia has so much wisdom to share about what it took to be a Showgirl. Enjoy!
