How did you get your stage-name?

We’re given our stage-names after our two-month training period, just before our first performance. Why am I called “Enny Gmatic”? For me to know and you to find out…

 

What is your fondest memory at the Crazy Horse thus far?

The first time I celebrated my birthday! I was on my first international tour and we were doing a shooting with a Taiwanese designer. It was for an exhibition, four full-size pictures of me dressed in nothing but light were to be displayed. At the end of the shooting the crew came in carrying a cake and singing “Happy Birthday” in Taiwanese.

 

How do you get motivated when you get up every day?

By being happy! In the morning I make myself an herbal infusion with ginger, lemon and honey. In order to better enjoy the little pleasures in life, I meditate and I’m always aware that I’m incredibly lucky to be able to live my passion.

 

Who is the woman that inspires you most?

All women.

 

What’s your best beauty and/or fitness tip?

A healthy diet, feeling good about yourself, yoga and Lush beauty products !

Doing "Chain Gang" was quite the stage experience for me

 

What is “Crazy” and what is “not Crazy” for you?

For the past sixty years, throughout the different eras and fashion trends, Crazyness has never ceased to evolve. Nothing is eternal! What hasn’t changed though, is that the Crazy Girls still stylishly embody every woman’s personality and fantasy. Banality and status quo are not Crazy.

 

What is your favorite act in the show?

“Chain Gang”, “Laser Lay”, “Rougir de Désir”, just to name a few. These three numbers are very different and have stood the test of time. They’re very powerful and allow the dancers to express all sorts of emotions to exceptional music. Doing “Chain Gang” was quite the stage experience for me.

 

How do you become a Crazy Horse dancer?

To become a dancer, the ingredients are: classic ballet training, talent as an actress, passion, dedication and most importantly sensuality and glamour. Shake it all up and you get an explosive Crazy Girl cocktail.

 

How do you prepare before getting on stage? Are there any rituals you go through?

When I get there I walk around the dressing room for some chitchat and to see how the girls are doing. I do my hair and makeup. Finally, I do some yoga to unite mind and body before beginning the Crazy Show!

 

In only three words, how would you define a Crazy Girl?

A bubbly, sensual and mysterious woman…
