If you aren't aware of the breathtaking talent that is Sally Rand, then you are certainly missing out! I think it's fair to say she is the ultimate Burlesque performers idol and influence. She's defiantly one of my own.

Unlike normal, I'm not going to include a long list of her history. But instead just a few short facts. She was born in April 1904 and then sadly died in August 1979 (aged 75) She was both a burlesque dancer and actress. Who was famously remember for her feather fan and balloon bubble dances. The thing you have to remember is she did something, that was seen as being so obscene to her time. So much so she was arrested several times for perceived indecent exposure. Now, why not sit back and click play on the video below to watch Miss Rand perform a very elegant feather fan performance.
