Tina Tobago

Nationality: French
Hair: dark

How did you get your stage-name?

Tina for the cat-like hair of Tina Turner and Tobago in reference to a paradise island of the Caribbean that reminds me of my island of origin: Guadeloupe.

How do you become a Crazy Horse dancer?

I became Crazy Horse dancer in that famous cabaret thanks to my dance passion. I wanted so much to join it for years. I have to shorten my time as an operating room nurse to do both.

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

I think of the determination I need to have to be able to fulfill a number of my desires.

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

A smoothie per day, minimum!

What is your favorite act in the show?

Chain Gang

Tina Tobago

Elegant, sensual, dominating

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

I put on my super slippers, spread my make-up in the dressing room and transform myself: hair, nail polish, make-up and I always end up with my lips.

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

The first day of training. It was very rich in emotion.

Who is the woman who that inspires you most?

I have two: my grandmother for her strength of character and my mum who passed me her taste for dance.

What is Crazy and what is not Crazy for you?

“Crazy” is an outlined look. Vulgarity is “not Crazy”.

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

Elegant, sensual, dominating.
