11 May Prairie Diva Spotlights – Alanna
We would like to introduce to you our special blog post series, “Prairie Diva Spotlights”. Prairie Diva spotlights will showcase the amazing women who make up the Prairie Diva Burlesque Fusion dance classes. Every woman has a different story and journey through dance and we want to shine light on these women through this blog.
These women are unique and beautiful and give it their all each and every class with their high energy and positive spirits. Please let us introduce you to these amazing women!
Each of the Prairie Divas took part in a professional photo shoot with Brittany Rae Photography and answered a series of questions about themselves.
Introducing our first spotlight:
“Dancing lets me get out of my head and just enjoy myself without worrying about anything else that’s going on. It’s also way more fun than the gym!”
When did you start dancing?
My parents signed me up for ballet class when I was 4 and I haven’t gone more than 6 months without taking a dance class since then.

Baking, reading, and naps.
