  • “All performers can see how much passion other performers have by what they leave on stage. The performers from Red Dahlia are passion, plain and simple. They don’t do shows. They bring you EVENTS! Smart, funny and of course they are sexy as hell. One moment you are laughing, next thinking and next learning. For me, they define what true artists are. I would always welcome them to any venue I have. They say, ‘Burlesque as an art form is just like a diamond. It shines bright and you are always happy to have it.’ If you hold true to this, then the ladies of Red Dahlia are the Crown Jewels of Europe.”
