Welcome to my Patreon! 

My name is Sydni Deveraux- and I'm also known in burlesque and beyond as "The Golden Glamazon". It's very nice to meet you! 

I started my journey in burlesque back in 2005- and I'm an award-winning, headlining, producing, teaching and writing entertainer based in NYC. I began my love affair with this art form while living in Seattle and since 2014 I've been living in NYC as a full-time performer and producer for a 14 years old company, WASABASSCO.

I've been in troupes, produced a tour, headlined various festivals all over the world, produced ongoing weekly shows in both Seattle (2010-2014) and NYC (2014- current) for the last 8 years, have a big monthly burlesque showcase called HOUSE OF DEVERAUX in Manhattan at a giant rock venue called Le Poisson Rouge, been named on multiple 'best of' lists for this industry for the last 5ish years and I've won some awards at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in 2013 and 2017 respectively. I'm a very hard worker that has had the good fortune of being able to call this a job- but it takes work and I want to help you and the industry up it's game. 

Over the years I've written extensively about the inner workings of burlesque entertainment- from being in a troupe, producing tours, beginning producing, negotiating, touring, etiquette- pretty much if someone had a question, I wanted to have an answer. I've also taught dozens of workshops over the years during my travels- on movement, confidence, connection, business practices and more. 

I used to keep a very successful blog, but after writing extensively about not performing for free- I realized that I was a part of the problem- I was giving away knowledge for free in an industry that already doesn't get paid nearly enough for what it offers. Artists and creators- should be paid for their contributions. I was, in fact, undercutting other instructors in my field. So I stopped- and focused on my solo career, apprenticed under an iconic performer in our industry, competed for some titles and kept my head down. I taught in workshops and consulted one on one with performers that sought out my knowledge. 

This Patreon has been created so that I can continue what I started years ago. When you join at $5 per project, I will answer your questions on a no more than 1x a month basis. The format will either be blog style writing OR a video blog- depending on what I see fit.

I set the price at $5 to make sure that it's affordable and you're also able to learn from other veteran performers that come through your towns as well as be accessible to more marginalized folks. This forum is merely a supplement to your further education in being the best performer you can be. You can submit questions via the message button on my page OR email to [email protected]

Most in person group workshops are usually $20+ and absolutely should be that and more depending on the teacher and the topic. I want to make sure that you understand that I'm setting this project at $5 to ensure an ongoing discussion and education with you while you seek out other instructors you can see in person. 

Questions should be: 
1. General. Very specific-to-you questions should be done via an hour long one-on-one consultation
2. Pertaining to burlesque or entertainment- the ins and outs of the business etc. 

Unless you give me permission to use your name, I will not post your identity and will absolutely scrub the query of names and locations of other people and places. This is not a place to gossip or to tarnish reputations. It is up to my discretion to not answer certain questions if I think I'm not the one for the task or it is clear that the querent would benefit from private professional help. I do answer all my emails though, so you will know whether it will be covered here in my writings. 

I do NOT offer video critiques to the public. Please hire me for a video critique so that we can work on your act specifically. 

I think you'll find my writing and speaking style as one that is clear and pulls no punches. I care deeply about this art form and want to see it succeed and become one that is adequately compensated for and offers top-notch entertainment. I LOVE talking about this business and have been running successful shows for a long time and have a lot of knowledge to share with you. 


What does your support give me? Great question:) 
Your financial support of this project will give me an acceptable way of stretching my writing muscles and transmitting my knowledge to you. The money I am able to make from this will go directly into my burlesque- specifically making new costumes. 

I hope you'll take this opportunity to further your education in this art form and I'm humbled you chose me! 

Love,
Sydni Deveraux
