Congratulations to Tessa Von Twinkle, winner of the 2015 Sparkly Devil Memorial Scholarship!
As the scholarship recipient, Tessa Von Twinkle will receive a full pass to all four showcases and all Legends Master Classes during The Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend at the Orleans Hotel and Casino this June 4-7, and will be paired with one of the attending Legends to act as her escort for the Weekender.
“I couldn’t be more honored to have been chosen by the Burlesque Hall of Fame as this year’s Sparkly Devil Memorial Scholarship winner,” said Von Twinkle. “The history of burlesque is so rich and the opportunity to talk one-on-one with the Legends who shaped that history is an incredible way to learn from the past and to keep burlesque moving forward.”
The Sparkly Devil Memorial Scholarship is intended to encourage a stronger relationship between the younger and older generations of burlesque performers and to instill a sense of service to the burlesque community. Recipients are chosen in part for their commitment to the burlesque community and to the Legends who embody our history.
Please join us in congratulating Tessa Von Twinkle, the 2015 Sparkly Devil Memorial Scholarship winner!
