Freya West

In this episode, Kim Baldwin sits down with Freya West, a burlesque and body positive performer who has twirled her tassels from Iceland to Albuquerque. She directs a 3-night weekly show at the historic Skull’s Rainbow Room, produces the Nashville Burlesque Festival and is headmistress of Delinquent Debutantes, Nashville’s burlesque finishing school. Freya has represented international brands including Dos Equis Most Interesting Show in the World and MAC Viva Glam. Her writing on body image and burlesque has been featured in numerous publications including HuffPost.

Join us for a conversation about how much behind-the-scenes work goes into a burlesque performance, making Nashville more naked, and a totally chill anecdote about fire eating.

Find Freya on Instagram, Facebook, and on Patreon.
