STRIP STRIP HOORAY RECAP
These shows at the Roxy Theatre in LA were very successful, as I’m sure you can imagine. Dita’s special guests included Dirty Martini, Selene Luna, Perle Noire, Duke Lafayette, Lada (from Crazy Horse Paris) and New York comedian and emcee Mr. Murray Hill. Dita debuted two new shows as well as performing an old favourite, the “Carousel Horse.” The “Rhinestone Cowgirl” show “features her as a Swarovski clad cowgirl complete with Swarovski horned bull!! Her bathtub show featured an all new Swarovski embellished costume by Mr. Pearl, complete with feather headdress.” – dita.net newsletter

Dita.net has a slid show of photos, taken by Aaron Settipane, from the shows.

NEW YEARS EVE, SINGAPORE
Dita spent New Years in Singapore, performing her OPIUM DEN show in at Resorts World Sentosa. You can view pictures from the event at dita.net.
