Burlesque - The Maine Attraction
The Maine Attraction captivates audiences every time she hits the stage. Coined the “Triple Threat of Burlesque” (dancer/actress/singer) she’s performed domestically and internationally, from MGM Grand*s Studio 54 in Las Vegas, Le Bus Palladium (Paris), Buddha Bar (Beirut, Lebanon) to Dragon-i in Hong Kong. Energetic, sensual, and wildly charismatic, her uninhibited rhythmic style and sense of humor blend an ensemble of samba, belly dance, African, improvisation and contortion, and pole dancing into a movement she’s defined as *Burlesque Fusion.*

Known for playing herself in Focus Features’ highly anticipated “Pariah”, Maine has also played leading roles in indie features: “Miente” (Cannes, Havana Film Festival), comedy-horror sensation “Nefertitty”, “Nefertitty In Space” and Lower East Side coming-of-age drama, “My Normal”. Her role in “Million In The Mirror”, a PSA for breast cancer research, recently won The Viewers Choice Award on the Lifetime Channel. She was scouted as a featured burlesque performer for an episode on a season of Royal Pains (USA Network). Most recently she was a featured dancer for the 2015 Grammy Award Winner Cheek To Cheek PBS Special with Lada Gaga and Tony Bennett. Maine Anders evokes the type of naughty but cheeky glamour in her burlesque, stage and film performances that garner the well deserved comparison to the extraordinary Josephine Baker. She’s a rising star in musical theater, television and film and will continue to grace any stage where she can let her creativity ride.

Circus/Aerialist - Ben Franklin
Working professionally for over 20 years, Ben Franklin (yes, that is his real name) is a multi-disciplinary artist whose career has spanned Theatre & Musicals to Film, Circus Arts, Variety & Burlesque. He is a co-founder of Theatrical circus company 2 Ring Circus, one part of award-winning Burlesque duo, 2toFly, and co-creator of long running NYC show, Boys' Night Revue.
