      ? Thank you, Doll-E!! I am happy to know you and have your support as I bring this message to the world.

      Thank you for being part of this episode and using all the wisdom you gleaned as a Showgirl/Dancer to create your own beautiful impact in this world. ?

  2. the whie part threw me off, what about the Brazilian and cuban show girls who are not white? lol this was a great podcast anyway

    1. This podcast focuses primarily on the Showgirls that appeared on Las Vegas and French stages, which were originally more diverse (from other countries,) than they became at a later date. Make sure to listen to the Diversifying the Narrative series that shares about the “Ebony” line that danced in Jubilee! and other Donn Arden Productions.
