Lumina Classika

Nationality: French

Hair: brown

Eyes: brown

Astrological sign: Sagittarius

 

How did you get your stage-name?

“Lumina” because everyone thought I had a very sunny disposition. I come from the south of France and I was blonde at the time and had the sun under my skin! “Classika” because I’m a classical ballet dancer.

 

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

All the trips I was able to make during my first two years at the Crazy Horse: Singapore, Lisbon and Las Vegas. These are unforgettable experiences, especially Singapore!

 

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

By reminding myself every morning that my job is also my passion, that I’m extremely lucky and that I’m healthy. If the sun is shining, it’s even better.

 

Who is the woman that inspires you most?

Audrey Hepburn’s elegance.

Ready for an hour and a half joy and craziness

 

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

Sleep is very important. Sun makes me look good.

 

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

The arch of a back, sensuality, personality and elegance are all Crazy. Vulgarity isn’t.

 

What is your favorite act in the show?

Not one, but three! “God Save Our Bareskin”, “Va Va Voum” and “Rougir de Désir”.

 

How do you become a Crazy Horse dancer?

By passing an audition!

 

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

By checking that I arch my back correctly, Crazy red lipstick, impeccable bangs, and now I’m ready for an hour and a half joy and craziness.

 

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

Sensuality, personality and CRAZY!
