We say hi to Mickey Mouse, who seems to be having a fine old time. Then off comes the shirt, and she’s down to her lingerie at last. Burlesque dancers in New York are generally allowed to strip only to pasties and g-string. Denise says her “pre-New York me” could never have done anything so provocative as the performances she does now. Or as provocative as Slow Exposure? Tomorrow: nakedness.

What is burlesque? How does it differ from striptease or exotic dancing? Do burlesque dancers get nude? Just what are pasties, and do they fall off? These and other questions answered today by radiant Denise. And as for her pants…

As Denise talks us through what she’s wearing, there’s a clue to her night-time activities, a burlesque festval t-shirt. She’s a popular burlesque dancer. Before we get to that, she explains how she got into photo-shoot styling. And takes her boots off.

Texas-born and Southern California-raised, Denise brought her considerable beauty to New York two years ago. She styles photo shoots for food and other products, and — as we’ll learn — does some special performance art in the evenings. Sit back and bask.

Renée: Day Two

Renée: Day One
