Today we’d like to introduce you to Harley Harpurr.
Hi Harley, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I’ve been a dancer all my life, apart of lots of competitive dance teams. I moved to LA. Went to school for dance. Auditioned for a burlesque troupe in LA. Fell in love with the idea of burlesque however, the troupe was more of “girl next door” vibe, not for me. So I created my own troupe the damn devillez. I was a stripper for many years, however, burlesque I will always continue. My troupe caters to women that are the “rebels” of burlesque. We dance to metal and rock, are moves and outfits are more “edgy” than traditional. Most of the ladies on the troupe are currently strippers or dominatrixs. My ladies are beautiful, powerful, and talented. I’m not the best at this kind of thing.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
NO, IT HAS NOT! The Damn Devillez contract is very particular because of some incidences I have had such as drinking on the job, drug use, and dancers having relationships with each other.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
The Damn Devillez is known for October which we call “Devillez season”. Of course, we are an all year long company, however, we are known for our blood shows, horror movie recreations, and sexy edge. We ARE NOT your average burlesque show.
Since Covid hit, we have taken on the virtual world. We are currently doing shows once a month. Our next show is December 18th! Tickets are available at www.thedamndevillez.com
