Other Projects and Skills


Vaudeville/Burlesque / Juggling

Fiona organized a Southcentral Alaska Tour with the Dazzling Rosemarie Show, a 5-member variety troupe, in March 2018. In November 2017, she appeared as Charlie Chaplin in a juggling burlesque performance for Pulse Dance Company's Gold Rush-themed burlesque show. She reprised the role in March 2018 at the Cabin Fever art installation hosted by the Anchorage Museum at Kincaid Park with a more family-oriented theme of finding warmth in the darkness.
