Raahhh!!! It’s a blog. It’s a DARES blog. So what is going to be in it?
Hello! My names Ursula Dares and once a week I will bring you ‘diary of dares’. Blogging is a brand spanking new event for me & I’m going to see what naturally evolves or happens when a Zebra puts a pen to paper.

I can guarantee you it’ll be full of burlesque love from the bottom rung of the ladder. I’m going to share my views on my favourite performers, interview our burlesque audience members, attempt to get into the psychology & history of the performers. It will contain thoughts, ideas, stories, and reviews on shows, industry professionals & recommendations. I’ll pop in experiences of applying for work, making contacts with other professionals, back stage action and gig dates… the blog will be, simply, wherever my mind, my mood and my pen take me.

Once a week, every Wednesday, you’ll get blogging Dares.

Daring Kiss
(AKA Zebra)
