Attractive woman, savvy career professional, wife and mother, daughter - the list of roles women play is endless. What is there behind these roles? Lora Cheadle, who felt trapped in the successful lawyer persona she'd crafted, believes there is joy, laughter, and self-love based not on performing roles perfectly, but on being oneself, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
While she used the principles of burlesque to peel away the layers she'd built up around her core self, she also found that the laughter and parody inherent in burlesque could liberate women from their wounds, fears, and inhibitions even if they don't set foot on an actual stage.
While Flaunt! dives deep into how and why readers got where they are, it quite literally dances through these realizations and uses laughter, play, and storytelling to break free. Cheadle calls herself a life choreographer because she has helped herself, and now helps others dance through their lives, sometimes with well-plotted steps and other times with improvisation but always, always with self-love, sass, and joy.
