How did you get your stage-name?

I refused the first proposal for my stage name. I was lucky I licked the second one. I know that Zora means “white” and “beauty” in Arabic, and Moonshine “moonlight” in English.

How do you become a Crazy Horse dancer?

For me, a classical dancer training is essential. Being at ease as a woman…and with round and muscled buttocks!

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

With a yoga session in the morning

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

Laugh and make love.

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

I apply some nice make-up, I laugh with my dancer friends and I stretch

The first time I performed “Final Fantasy”, my first solo.

What is your favorite act in the show?

“Lay Laser Lay” and “U Turn Me On

Who is the woman who that inspires you most?

Marilyn Monroe.

What is Crazy and what is not Crazy for you?

“Crazy” is elegance, arch, softness and a touch of madness. What is “not Crazy” is vulgarity.

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

Classy, spontaneous, sensual.
