"Chain Gang", a wild, sensual number


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

Crazy is being faithful to Monsieur Bernardin.


What is your favorite act in the show?

It’s “Chain Gang”, a wild, sensual number.


How do you become a Crazy Horse dancer?

You don’t become, you’re born with it. You dance naked not only to show off your body, but also to reveal your emotions.


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

I put Arnica massage oil on my body and a rose day cream on my face.


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

A sensual, elegant and charming woman.
