How did you get your stage-name?
Pixelle comes from my small size and also my taste for accuracy as a pixel in a picture.

How do you become a Crazy Horse dancer?
To each one her story, for my part with a lot of perseverance and passion

How do you get motivated when you get up every day?
The sun.

What’s your best beauty and/or fitness tip?
Paradoxically, by doing only the bare minimum: no make-up during the day just a moisturizer. To stay in shape, I love swimming and sunbathing

How do you prepare before getting on stage? Are there any rituals you go through?
I take my time to do my make-up routine, check my costumes and breathe.

What is your fondest memory at the Crazy Horse thus far?
My best memory is my first time on that mythical stage and when I catch my family’s look full of emotions into the public

My favorite act is “U turn me on” for its mischievous and cheeky side

What is your favorite act in the show?
My favorite act is “U turn me on” for its mischievous and cheeky side. I also like “Scanner” for its free and explosive side. “Lay Laser lay” is as my favorite solo act, so strong and powerful.

Who is the woman that inspires you most?
Every strong and passionate woman inspires me. Many men also inspire me.

What is “Crazy” and what is “not Crazy” for you?
“Crazy” is self-confidence, knowing how to play with one’s sensuality. Everything is “Crazy” as long as it’s not vulgar.

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