Val Valentine - Cupid’s Cutie: signed, 8x10 photo
Val trained as a dancer as a child and loved to perform.  Hence, she started spending her summers as a showgirl on the Raynell Golden carnival shows.  She travelled with Mitzi, who was both a veteran burlesque performed and Val’s mom’s best friend.  Mitzi taught Val the importance of developing an act, including fabulous costumes.  Within 3 years, with costumes made by the famous Tony Midnite, Val was a top burlesque feature.  She continues to work carnival shows in the summer and early fall, and worked in burlesque theaters and clubs the rest of the year.
