How did you get your stage-name?

I’m of Vietnamese origin and during my first few rehearsals with Svetlana, our stage manager, she said I was utterly munchable, just like the cookie…

 

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

All my memories at the Crazy Horse have been great, especially my first stage appearance and my first solo act. But the most memorable are those shared with other people, the relationships between me and the other dancers who can become true friends and uncontrollable backstage laughter!

 

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

Take some time out for myself, wake up slowly and a nice cup of coffee! All the while smiling.

 

Who is the woman that inspires you most?

Angelina Jolie, a strong, yet humble and extremely humane woman, supremely high-class…

 

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

Eat fruit, drink water, walk as much as you can and, when I have time, put on as little makeup as possible, to let my skin rest.

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

Crazy is elegance, self-assurance and self-confidence. Which leads us to sensuality and femininity. What isn’t, is just simply performing… because being Crazy is impersonating a character. The difference between what we are in real life and what we represent on stage is essential to being Crazy.

 

What is your favorite act in the show?

“Final Fantasy”.

 

How do you become a Crazy Horse dancer?

You need to pass an audition, but you truly become a Crazy dancer with the passing of time, day after day, you become more accomplished on this remarkable stage. The more time goes by, the more you become “woman”.

 

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

My little ritual is to put on my makeup and turn into, become Mika Do. Joke around with my friends in the dressing room, because a good atmosphere always means a good show.

 

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

Elegant, mysterious and playfully mischievous.
