Legend of Burlesque
The Body That Never Stops
Gabriella started dancing in Spain at the beginning of the 1970s. From the moment of her very first performance, she loved the Burlesque way of life – "the people, the glamor, and most of all the travel!". Gabriella has worked as a dancer all over the Middle East and Europe. She describes herself as a 'a lucky gal' and would not change anything she has done in her career. This is Miss Maze's first appearance at The Great Burlesque Exposition. She currently lives in South Carolina.
