Podcast Episode 3 – Keeping Up with Creativity and Craft in Lockdown with Tootsie

You can listen to Episode 3 of the Invisible Cabaret Podcast here!

Tootsie (who also goes by Steph De Whalley) is an actress, tap dancer and cabaret performer. She is mid-tap dance here, looking cheerfully at the floor. She is wearing a red sleeveless dress, knee length, which is half-covered by a red checked apron, and black heeled tap shoes. Behind her is a table with a wrapped present and a vase of flowers on it. We can just see a couple of audience members behind her who are enjoying her dance.
